Freeman Roughrider Fieldhouse Groundbreaking Slated
Neosho, MO – Crowder College will officially break ground for Freeman Roughrider Fieldhouse Monday, September 24, at 1 pm at the construction site located near Lallemand Field on the Neosho campus.
Special guests will include Freeman Health System President & CEO Paula Baker; Freeman Neosho Hospital Chief Operating Officer Renee Denton; Crowder College Foundation President Scott Wade; and Crowder College Board of Trustees Chairman Andy Wood.
“This is a long-awaited and exciting day for our coaches, student-athletes, alumni, and patrons,” said Wade. “Freeman Roughrider Fieldhouse is the first new construction on the campus since 2010 and the first to be 100 percent donor-funded. Our groundbreaking ceremony not only marks the commencement of construction, it honors the incredible generosity of each donor partnering with us to bring this facility to fruition.”
With completion anticipated in Spring 2019, the 15,600-square-foot facility will include an indoor practice field for softball, baseball, and soccer, as well as a training room and baseball and soccer locker rooms.
