L.R. Hill Sports Complex
The L.R. Hill Sports Complex is a 48,000 square foot facility that houses the Monarch football program, as well as the Lady Monarch field hockey and lacrosse programs.
Arguably one of the top Football Championship Subdivision (FCS) facilities in the country, the first level houses a 6,000 square foot strength & conditioning area, a 3,000 square foot athletic training room, a players' lounge and players' and coaches' locker rooms. The players' locker room features the most comprehensive lockers available, room for up to 98 players and six high-definition flat screen televisions. The lockers are 32 inches wide and feature helmet and shoulder pad racks with fans atop each unit, allowing equipment to dry overnight.
The second level houses the coaches' offices, staff meeting rooms, a team meeting room that can be divided into three sections with three projection video screens, and a video room featuring a state-of-the-art editing system.
Just behind the facility lies two new AstroTurf GameDay Grass 3D fields that the Monarchs will use for practice. One field will be a regulation size 100 yards and the other will be a shortened 60-yard field.
The GameDay Grass 3D fields were supplied by GeneralSports Venue (GSV), a certified minority business enterprise and the exclusive U.S. marketer of AstroTurf-branded products. GameDay Grass 3D is one of the most advanced synthetic turf products, featuring best-in-class performance and safety benefits, and characteristics that closely mimic the look and feel of natural grass.
