A 14-acre area just one mile south of the main campus, the Complex was dedicated to former coach and athletic director John M. Strahl in April 2004. The Complex includes the football, soccer, baseball, softball, and track and field training facilities.
Parts of the John Strahl Athletic Complex:
A. Francis Field, the Panther football field, was completed in 1987 just before the Panther football team began their first season. The stadium can seat up to 2,000 fans. Also part of Francis Field is a newly refurbished, all-weather track.
B. Lady Panther Field, home of the softball team, boasts a skinned infield, 200 ft. fence enclosing the field, brick dugouts, and ample practice space.
C. The Robert E. Smith Field is dedicated to Greenville's ninth president. The baseball field is one of the best in the area.
D. Francis Field is home to the men's and women's soccer teams as well as the renowned Greenville soccer fans. The field was completed in the mid-1960s. Recent improvements have included installation of new Bermuda grass, team benches on the east side of the field, a new kicking wall, and bleachers seating 500.
E. The Briner Training Center houses indoor practice facilities for baseball, softball, and track and field. The 12,000 square foot facility was named in honor of Dr. Robert A. Briner during the 2004-05 school year. The interior features batting cages, artificial turf flooring, and an area for pitching.
F. and G. 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.
