A NEW ERA IN D’YOUVILLE ATHLETICS
With the dedication of the Porter Avenue Athletic Fields—the first outdoor sports facility in the College’s history—D’Youville has marked a milestone in the evolution of our athletics program. Our soccer, lacrosse, and softball teams will no longer have to travel the region in search of venues to hold practices and games. Our fans can now walk just a few blocks from the center of campus to cheer them on.
The beautiful synthetic turf field and spacious field house will support both Spartan intercollegiate athletics and also intramurals. In doing so, they will provide our teams with a competitive edge, enrich campus life for all our students, and strengthen D’Youville’s appeal to prospective students. However, these practical advantages may pale beside the feeling of pride sparked when fans read the College’s name in red block letters across the turf, as our athletes take the field under the lights.
