Trinity Soccer Facilities Undergoing Renovations

By Justin Parker '99

January 2011 — Trinity University has begun construction and renovation projects at the Trinity Soccer Stadium and surrounding areas.


Crews have begun renovations on the soccer fields
on the Trinity campus.

Construction began over the holiday break on the Timothy “Tito” Isom Memorial Center, which will include a press box with upgraded filming and webcasting capabilities.  Another addition will be a covered red brick team bench structure that will house both the home and visiting players and coaches during all home soccer games at Trinity.
The Isom Center is named for the late Tito Isom – a former men’s soccer standout from 1994-98 who died unexpectedly in September 2000.

The spectator area also will be renovated to increase permanent seating for friends, family, alumni, and fans of Tiger soccer, as well as enlarge the stadium’s capacity. 

Meadows Pavilion, which has various uses both at soccer games and with general campus uses, also will be renovated to expand the restroom facilities and enhance the overall structure.

“These new improvements to the soccer field will bring our venue up to the high standards set by our men’s and women’s soccer programs, under the leadership of Coach Paul McGinlay and Coach Lance Key,” explained Director of Athletics Bob King. “This will also enhance our ability to host championships and other quality events at our facility.”

Trinity’s men’s and women’s soccer teams are perennial playoff participants, and have frequently been ranked in the top five nationally under McGinlay and Key. McGinlay recently completed his 20th season at Trinity, and led the 2003 team to the NCAA Division III National Championship. Key, a three-time All-American from 1996-99, has led the Tiger women to five SCAC Championships and two appearances in the NCAA Quarterfinals (2005, 2009) in his seven seasons with the team.

“We see this as the beginning of renovations and support of all athletics facilities,” continued King.  “Improvements such as this will not only help augment the student-athlete experience at Trinity, but also will improve the atmosphere for Tiger fans.”
