The Multi-Sport Stadium opened in September 2005. The A-turf surface is among the most modern and 'athlete-friendly' surfaces available. The stands seat 1,200 fans and there's a fully-equipped concession stand and pre-game and post-game event area.
It's a normal Saturday afternoon and the stands are packed as the Greyhounds drive for yet another touchdown!
H.L. Rocheleau '24 Memorial Field, named after one of the great benefactors of the College and friend of student-athletes, was modernized and re-opened in 2006. The Greyhounds are the second-winningiest Division II program in New England history with over 900 victories and played in the NCAA tournament in 2009!
The Andrew Laska Gymnasium was named in honor of the Director of Athletics Emeritus, Andrew Laska, and opened in 1962. It has been rated as "the best place to play in the Northeast-10 Conference" by many opponent players because of the large loud crowds and its closeness to the action. Both Greyhound basketball teams (who both won over 20 games in 2007-08) and the volleyball team play here.
The Laska Gym was refurbished and rededicated (September 26, 2009) . . . the place still has the old ambiance, but is now a very modern facility for our volleyball and basketball teams.
The College's tennis courts, home for both the men and women's teams.
The College hosted a swimming and diving meet for the first time in its history in October 2008 in the Plourde Recreation Center pool.
The Greyhounds men's golf team practices and plays at the Cyprian Keys Golf Course in nearby Boylston, MA.
The Greyhound on the street wall of the Multi-Sport Stadium is a favorite visitor spot on campus.
