BC Soccer Complex public://soccerfield.jpg

The soccer field on the campus of Benedictine College has gone through a number of changes throughout the past several seasons.

The NEW FieldTurf playing surface is flanked by a practice pitch on the east side and stadium seating on the west side.  Lights and world cup-style goals have been added within the last two years as well.

BC Softball Field public://img_5609.jpg

The BC Softball Field has gone through some changes over the past two seasons.  The most recent was the addition of a warning track down the foul lines with that grass being moved into the foul territory area of the infield.  The addition of a warning track to the outfield is also expected in the near future which will make the outfield a safer place to play for the Lady Ravens and their opponents.

The field has a fully-equiped press box that sits just beyond the first-base dugout and is located above a storage room for the program.

Built in 1923, this was the original indoor athletic facility for the college. Today, it still houses a fitness center, swimming pool, two handball courts, a basketball court, and athletic department offices. The first floor provides a central hub on campus in the Raven Roost. The Raven Store, Deli, and the Monte Cassino Inn (restaurant/pub) provide food and shopping. The Roost has a large open dinning area furnished with tables, chairs and booths, plus a study area oak paneled bookcases, and a fireplace. Memorabilia reflecting the various eras in the college’s rich history are displayed throughout the facility.

The mural in the Raven Roost is titled “The Development of Atchison Around the Benedictine Community,” and was done by Anthony Benton Gude, grandson of Thomas Hart Benton.

Words taken from the “Rule of St. Benedict” adorn the tops of the archways in the Raven Roost as a reminder of what the true foundation of the college is. They include Family, Listen, Hospitality, Work & Prayer, Peace, and Community.

Larry Wilcox Stadium public://larrywilcoxstadium.jpg

The crowning jewel of the Raven football program is Larry Wilcox Stadium and the playing surface at the stadium.

Upgraded to FieldTurf during the spring of 2008, Larry Wilcox Stadium has become known as one of the best home-field advantages in small-college football.

The chair-back seats came to Benedictine from Atlanta-Fulton County Stadium, the former home of the Atlanta Braves.  The stadium not only offers Raven fans a great view of the game from every seat, it also delivers a breath-taking view of the Abbey, located on the southeast side of the field.

The stadium was built with fans in mind.  The seats face toward the east, which means that the fall sun will be either directly above the seats or behind the stadium during games.  The stadium also offers a large concourse, rest rooms, and a concession stand conveniently located at the top of the stadium so fans never miss a down of Raven football.
