The University of Richmond and the Spider athletic department have broken ground on a new team support facility at Crenshaw Field, the home of Spider field hockey this summer. Construction began on the facility this past April and it is scheduled to be completed in time for the 2019 season.
“This new team facility will be a fantastic addition and improvement for our Spider field hockey program,” Vice President and Director of Athletics John Hardt said. “The history of Richmond field hockey and Crenshaw Field is long and storied; and now, due to some very generous support from our Spider Field Hockey community, we are able to make a transformational improvement to our team facility. This new facility will help Spider field hockey in many ways and its construction continues our core principle of providing the best student-athlete experience possible in each of our varsity programs.”
