An Inside Look At The Luth Athletic Complex
Over the last year since the Ceremonial Beam Signing & Groundbreaking, considerable progress has been made on the $95 million expansion and renovation of the Luth Athletic Complex.
Our latest update on the construction progress offers an inside look at all of the latest developments. CBS Sports Network broadcasters Jason Knapp and Mo Cassara rave about all of the amenities the new facility will have to offer during their broadcast of the Holy Cross men's basketball game against American. In addition, director of athletics Nathan Pine gives a tour of the Luth Athletic Complex to Patriot League commissioner Jennifer Heppel, highlighting all of the enhancements which will benefit Crusader student-athletes for decades to come.
Most fans have already had a look at what the Luth Athletic Complex will have to offer, as the renovated basketball arena and hockey rink both opened prior to the start of the 2016-2017 season. First opened in 1975, the Hart Center now features a redesigned court, prominently featuring the state of Massachusetts at center court, enhanced lighting, and updated bleacher seating.
The new main entrance also opened last fall, including a spacious two-story lobby and an expanded ticket office.
Scheduled to open this summer, the sports medicine area will feature 3,000 square feet of new space. Many other expansion elements will be coming online in the fall of 2017.
With its official opening set for the summer of 2018, the new facility will feature a 64,000-square foot indoor practice facility for use by all field sports (100 yards long by 55 yards wide), an auxiliary gymnasium for basketball team practice and volleyball practice/competition, 9,500 square feet of new space for strength and conditioning training and equipment, additional locker rooms for varsity teams, new meeting rooms/recruiting space, as well as offices for all programs and all athletic administrators and athletic support services.
