Kachel Fieldhouse

The 50,000 square foot space is an all-purpose facility that performs numerous functions for members of the campus and community. 

Converse Track is a 200 meter Beynon BSS 1000 synthetic surface (Hobart encapsulated), eight lanes in the straightaways and six in the turns, where ¼ inch pyramid spikes are used. There is a 130 foot long jump runway, with the pit ten feet from the board, and an unlimited triple jump runway with boards at 28, 32, 36, and 40 feet, and wood boards at 28 and 36 feet. The pole vault has a 120 foot runway, and there are two rings for throwing events, both with laser measuring. 

The fieldhouse also houses four multi-purpose courts for indoor tennis. That facility was redone in 2012 with a tennis friendly surface to slow the bounce down to a more true tennis bounce. Baseball and softball do some of their off-season work in the fieldhouse and indoor batting cages and mounds help out when inclement spring weather occurs. The Warhawk volleyball team also uses the fieldhouse, with tournaments occupying several courts in addition to Russell Arena.  The fieldhouse can also set up four basketball courts for general recreation or intramurals.
