CORNISH FIELD

(no pets allowed at all facilities)

ETBU's soccer field, which opened in 2002, was christened Cornish Field in 2007 following a gift for facility upgrade from Harold and Joyce Cornish of Marshall.

The lighted field, which began construction in 2000 and was open and ready for play to start the 2002 season, sits on the extreme northern edge of the ETBU campus adjacent to Ornelas Stadium, ETBU's football facility.

The improvement to the facility included installation of permanent bleachers, concrete walkways, a retaining wall that will allow fans to bring their own lawn chairs and enjoy the games, and a wrought iron decorative fence on the south side of the field as well as updated fencing around the entire field. The entrance is bricked with a decorative archway bearing the name of the donor.

Opened in 2002, the facility is accessible by a road -- Baker Boulevard, courtesy of Mr. and Mrs. Ed Baker -- that runs down the west side of Ornelas Stadium on the north end of campus. The soccer field runs east to west with bleachers to the south side of the field. The north side is used for team benches and scorers table.

A platform over the scorers table is used for video. A large soccer scoreboard sits at the east end of the complex.

Lights were added to the facility in the fall of 2005. The lights were purchased with a gift in honor of former Lady Tiger Brooke Adair, a 2000-03 four-year letterwinner at ETBU.
