What does Fr. David Suwalsky, S.J., President of Jesuit High School, think about Jesuit’s new stadium?

“It’s awesome.”

The 5.8 million dollar Hanson McClain Advisors Stadium will open in late summer of 2015. The state-of-the-art all weather turf and track surfaces will be used year round by football, soccer, lacrosse, and rugby, and will be safer for competitors due to the new surface. Runners will complete on a level surface that is weather resistant.

“A school like ours should strive to provide the resources to our students that help them discover and develop their abilities,” Fr. Suwalsky, S.J said.

The stadium will be used by many students in physical education and by many of Jesuit’s sports teams; this will help improve their athletic skills and abilities.

In addition, the stadium will be great for fans.

“I think that the stadium will be a great place for fans and their support during a game is essential to the positive experience of our student-athletes,” Fr. Suwalsky, S.J said.

Overall, the stadium will be an awesome place for athletes and fans to enjoy the future games meets, and it’s all weather turf field will last for years to come.
