Jay Martin Soccer Complex
Named the Jay Martin Soccer Complex in 2013 in recognition of the longtime Ohio Wesleyan men's soccer coach, the facility is widely regarded as among the Midwest's finest for soccer.
In addition to the lighted game field, which is still known as Roy Rike Field, the facility includes a fully-enclosed press box, aluminum bleacher seating, a building housing locker rooms and offices, a state-of-the-art irrigation system, and practice fields that can accommodate both Bishop teams simultaneously.
The Jay Martin Soccer Complex hosted the NCAA Division III men's soccer championship in 1990 and 1998 and the NCAA Division III women's soccer championship in 2001. Its lights have shined upon an overwhelming home-field record by the Bishop men's team, including a 40-game winning streak during the 1991-93 seasons. That home-field advantage also helped the Bishop men post the best record in the NCAA during the 1980s, regardless of division, and helped the Bishop women's team assemble an NCAA Division III-record 60-game winning streak during the 2001-03 seasons.
Team OWU is the fundraising arm of OWU Athletics. It is made up of alumni, parents, and friends of OWU Athletics that are committed to providing the funds necessary to compete for championships.
The funds raised provide equipment upgrades, travel expenses, expanded recruiting efforts and most importantly consistent financial stability to OWU Athletics. Through the generosity of over 1,100 supporters in 2016, Team OWU provided resources for expenses associated with our 23 varsity athletic programs.
