Oh boy: Brown University’s Center for Soccer and Lacrosse to be ready by the start of the 2020 season.

Once ground was broken in June 2019, construction progress on Brown University’s Center for Lacrosse and Soccer has outpaced every prediction. Leaders from Facilities and Athletics now expect the center to be fully functioning by the start of the Spring 2020 lacrosse season. On Thursday, Oct. 3, a crane lifted the structure’s final steel beam — decorated with the signatures and well wishes of student athletes, University leaders, construction workers and community members involved in the project’s planning and development — into place. In the spirit of topping-off tradition, an American flag and small pine tree sat atop the beam as it moved into position.

For its part, Loyola is doggedly moving on.
