The first phase of the Belhaven Bowl stadium is completed, and the Blazers’ football and soccer teams have begun play in a refreshed landscape on Belhaven’s historic campus.
The Belhaven Bowl Stadium, a $4 million project at the heart of campus, opened in October with a football game against East Texas Baptist. Just a few days later, the men’s soccer team defeated LeTourneau for the first Blazer victory in the new stadium.
The facility features a custom turf playing service, 1,000 chairback seats and a state of he art Daktronics HD video board, which is among the largest in NCAA Division III.
The Blazer football team will face two teams ranked in the national top 10 to end its 2016 home schedule. 10th-ranked Hardin-Simmons comes to Jackson on October 29 and No. 3 Mary Hardin-Baylor is the guest on November 5.
Both the men’s and women’s soccer squads will end their home seasons on October 29 with a doubleheader against Howard Payne.
