Official dedication of Keystone’s athletic field and track complex
Over 125 alumni, friends, and members of the campus community gathered to celebrate and officially dedicate Keystone’s new $3.4 million synthetic all-weather athletic field and track complex on Saturday, April 26, 2014. To mark the special occasion, many events were planned including a Relay for Life, family-friendly games, and a barbeque lunch.
The new venue is put to good use by more than 600 Keystone students who participate in intercollegiate sports and intramural recreation. In addition, the new facilities build tradition, enhance the residential experience for all students, support greater student persistence and retention, , and reduce the expense of off-campus rental fees and transportation to neighboring fields.
The newly constructed 360’ x 240’ field, which features an eight-lane track, is open to the public, except during special events, for community members who enjoy walking, running or practicing track and field events.
Opportunities are still available to support important enhancements to the Keystone College experience.
