The installation of the lights brings Phase 2 of 3 of the "Light It Up For The Lancers" campaign to near completion. Phase 2 also included the installation of a new scoreboard at the Lancer Aquatic Center. This current phase totaled $171,000 and was fulfilled this summer with the aid of friends, family and corporate partners.
The three phase project started with Phase 1, lights at the John C. Funk Softball Stadium, which was completed in 2010. Fundraising for Phase 2 began in 2011.
The third and final phase of the campaign is the installation of lights at the James W. Totman Baseball Stadium with a total cost of that project estimated to be $400,000. Those interested in supporting the "Light It Up For The Lancers" campaign can click here for more information.
