From the 2022 Architectural Portfolio: Louisiana Tech University - Origin Bank Softball and Soccer Complex

April 10, 2023
The project was recognized in the Sports Stadium/Athletic Facility category.

After a 2019 tornado destroyed the women’s softball and soccer fields at Louisiana Tech University in Ruston, La., officials sought to create new top-of-the-line facilities to get the Lady Techsters back on their fields. The Origin Bank Softball & Soccer Complex is a two-story fieldhouse that stands between the Dr. Billy Bundrick Field (softball) and the Robert Mack Caruthers Field (soccer). The first floor has an athletic training room that serves both Lady Techster teams daily with treatment tables, rehab equipment, offices, and cold tubs. The level also holds a softball player’s lounge, a shared equipment and laundry room, and an indoor hitting facility. The Dr. Billy Bundrick Field, “The Billy,” boasts an all-turf playing surface surrounded by large grandstands, turf berm, and press box. The Robert Mack Caruthers Field, “The Mack,” has a new playing surface as well as grandstands and press box.
