DAY 12 (Aug. 12): Out With The Old, In With The New
The Azusa Pacific athletics summer facelift began when the Dillon Recreation Complex gave the football team a brand new, fully synthetic practice field to match the Cougars’ home playing surface at Citrus field. The installation of a brand new set of lights at the Cougar Soccer Complex, which make way for night time soccer matches for the first time in school history, marked the second step of the overall athletics facilities upgrade.
And the overhaul continues as the athletics department adds a fully renovated weight room and training center, highlighted by indoor turf for agility drills and state-of-the-art weight lifting equipment. Along with new mats, dumbbells, medicine balls, and racks, there are numerous upgraded stations and improved pieces of training equipment to help the athletes in their first year of competition in NCAA Div. II conferences.
