“I can’t wait to work out in the dome, but I’m really looking forward to having a couple of practices in the dome next season.”

“I am really excited for the dome because it will give us a great place to train and practice during our pre-season, which is crucial to our success.”
– Women’s lacrosse head coach
Kristin St. Hilaire

“I am looking forward to having the ability to practice inside without the weather effects and without having to worry about space to move around.”

“This should help us in all aspects of the program; from indoor practice, off-season programs to recruiting.”
– Baseball head coach Joe Milazzo

“I am looking forward to being able to take ground balls on the turf because it is more realistic than the gym floor.”
