As the home of University of Mary Washington men’s and women’s lacrosse and field hockey, the artifical turf field at the Battleground Athletic Complex has, in the time frame of one calendar year, already hosted four NCAA Tournament events, as well as the first round of the 2012 Capital Athletic Conference men’s lacrosse championship.
The newly-surfaced artificial turf field boasts a new scoreboard and press box, complete with a state-of-the-art video recording system. A new celebration brick patio welcomes fans to the seating area, and plans for expanded seating and lights are also being pursued.
