Facilities/Directions

Francis Field
Francis Field, another part of the John M. Strahl Athletic Complex, is home to the men's and women's soccer teams as well as the renowned Greenville soccer fans.  The field, located one mile south of the main campus, was completed in the mid-1960's. Recent improvements have included the installation of game field lights, and a rebuilding of the field from top to bottom with lush Kentucky Blue Grass.

S.W. Andrews Fields
Located within the John M. Strahl Athletic Complex, S.W. Andrews Fields consist of two 80-yard by 120-yard irrigated soccer fields and a 100-space parking lot. The facility was completed in 2006 to serve as the primary practice facility for the men's and women's soccer programs.
