Nancy Churchman Sawin Field
Nancy Churchman Sawin Field is a beautiful Bermuda grass soccer facility at the base of a hill in the back of campus, and home to our Men’s and Women’s Soccer teams. The facility has seating for roughly 200 in the sideline bleachers… but many people park in the parking lot at the top of the hill and watch from their tailgate, which increases the seating capacity to roughly 1,000 and creates a great view of the action! The field sits adjacent to the rear entrance to the Jones Center which houses six locker rooms (four of which were built in 2020), the Athletic Training Room, the Gymnasium, the Fitness Center, and the state-of-the-art Cafeteria which was also built in 2020.
Jackson Athletic Complex
The Jackson Athletic Complex is home to Lightning Softball. This is a newly renovated venue that includes two brand new dugouts as well as new fencing, scoreboard, windscreen, press box, batting cage, and bullpens. There is bleacher seating for about 100 people, but spectators often bring their own chairs and there is plenty of space for that!
Jones Center Gymnasium
The Jones Center Gymnasium is the center of the action for GBC Athletics, playing home to our Men’s and Women’s Basketball teams and Women’s Volleyball team. The facility also holds one full and one partial batting cage for baseball/softball practices and clinics. There is bleacher seating for roughly 700 spectators, as well as a balcony for standing room that overlooks the court. The Gymnasium shares a building with six locker rooms (four of which were built in 2020), the Athletic Training Room, the Gymnasium, the Fitness Center, and the state-of-the-art Cafeteria which was also built in 2020.
