As part of William & Mary’s commemoration of 100 years of coeducation and women’s athletics, a $2.4 million commitment has been made by several donors to establish a new home for the women’s field hockey team. The development of the Busch Team Facility is being supported through a fundraising initiative called the Century Project, which has set into motion efforts designed to enhance the experience for women athletes and the caliber of the university’s facilities. Nearly 60 people were in attendance during a groundbreaking ceremony for the multi-use facility on Wednesday.  The Busch Field Team Facility, which is expected to be completed by summer 2019, will have a locker room, rooftop patio, meeting space and public restrooms. It will also feature video streaming capability that will provide live viewing of the games. The Women’s Lacrosse team will also benefit from access to the building during their fall practices and clinics at Busch Field. The new facility, funded through the following donors to the Century Project at Busch Field, helped make the dream of a quality multi-use building a reality for women athletes at William & Mary. – Ashley K.
