Sports personnel react to stadium news


 Town of Bluefield announcing plans to build a multi-use stadium has sparked many discussions in the state.  The town leaders anticipate the facility will host an additional 24-collegiate sporting events every year, boosting tourism for the area. 

One college town officials spoke with about hosting sporting events in the stadium is Bluefield College. Mike White, the Director for Athletics, is hoping to add lacrosse to Bluefield College's sports department. 

"Women's lacrosse is actually on the table at some point next year, so the timing is perfect," Mike says. "It will allow us to grow and take advantage of the new facility."

Mike says the facility will bring in more tournaments for all levels of sports and will be a win for the town.

"It will allow us to possibly consolidate our sports into one area and be able to compete for soccer close to campus."
