Team playing spring 2022 “home” games at a Columbia high school

LINCOLN UNIVERSITY- The Lincoln University softball team has been unable to play home games at their home stadium during the spring 2022 season due to poor field conditions and construction.
The team has been playing home games 30 minutes north at Columbia Rock Bridge High School. This change comes after construction to replace the current dirt field to an all-turf field. This remodel also includes the remake of the scoreboard and dugouts for both the Lincoln Blue Tigers and the opposing teams. According to LU Athletic Director Kevin Wilson, the upgrades will cost about $500,000.
Wilson said the work should be completed by fall of 2022.
