LINCOLN UNIVERSITY- The Blue Tiger softball team will be returning to home-play in 2023 after improvements are completed to the campus field located next to Dwight T. Reed Stadium. According to new head coach Jason Allison, construction is currently underway. Poor field conditions forced the 2022 spring season away from campus.
Last season’s home games were played at Battle High School in Columbia.
The new improvements include an all-turf field with a roughly $500,000 estimated cost. Beyond new Blue Tiger turf, the team has a new vision with the addition of Ollison. The team’s former coach, Christine Core, stepped down after spending four seasons leading Lincoln softball.
Ollison was previously the head coach at Versailles High School, where he posted a 34-20 record.
