Cyrill Stadium Photo Gallery
USC Upstate has been fortunate to partner with individuals to create some of the more impressive athletic facilities in the region and, arguably, the nation. It goes without saying that the softball stadium is one such facility thanks to the efforts of Frank Cyrill.
Cyrill had a vision to create one of, if not the, best softball facilities in the South, regardless of NCAA Division status. After several long hours of manual labor put in by Cyrill and head softball coach Chris Hawkins, along with the help of select other people and companies, Cyrill stadium opened in 2002.
The stadium was constructed in stages as the field, dugouts, concrete seating area, and lights were installed first for the 2002 season. The press box was completed for the 2004 season, while stadium seating, not pictured below but soon to be illustrated, was completed in December of 2004. The result of Cyrill's vision and commitment to the University is Cyrill Stadium, one of the best college softball stadiums around.
Cyrill Stadium has received numerous awards since its completion. The facility earned the 2006 NFCA/TURFACE National Field Maintenance Award and was named the Sports Turf Manager's 2006 College Softball Field of the Year. In December of 2003, Cyrill Stadium was honored with a regional TURFACE Field Maintenance Award.
