Lacrosse Magazine Hails Roy Kirby, Jr. Stadium as One of Ten Best Venues for Collegiate Lax

CHESTERTOWN, MD - According to Lacrosse Magazine, Washington College's Kibler Field at Roy Kirby, Jr. Stadium is one of the top ten venues for collegiate lacrosse in the nation. The magazine, a publication of US Lacrosse, highlights its top ten venues in its September issue and Kibler Field at Roy Kirby, Jr. Stadium checks in at No. 7, the only Division III venue on the list.

The list, on page 16 of the issue, includes the following comments:

"Traditionalists may still call it Kibler Field. It was one of the coziest places to see a game. The school modernized the facility, building an impressive grandstand that includes an indoor dining/viewing level above the bleachers."

The present Kibler Field at Roy Kirby, Jr. Stadium was completed in 2006. The Field Turf surface and stadium - complete with team rooms, appealing architecture, and an impressive skybox level - replaced the previous Kibler Field grass surface and metal bleachers.
