  • Army breaks ground on Anderson Athletic Center

    Army West Point Director of Athletics Boo Corrigan has announced June 8 that construction is set to begin on the Anderson Athletic Center, which will be the new state-of-the-art home for the Black Knights’ Sprint Football, Softball and Volleyball teams.
    “We have an incredible opportunity to offer top-level support for many of our cadet-athletes thanks to the Anderson Athletic Center,” Corrigan said. “Lee and Penny Anderson have been transformational for the academy and the athletic department. Not only have the Andersons been instrumental in developing our men’s and women’s rugby programs, but have endowed head coaching positions and contributed their time and mentorship. The building timeline would not have been met without the significant support of Bill Sandbrook, John and Ellen Drew, and Bill and Diane Spurgeon and the Class of 1981.”
    Located between Shea Stadium and the Softball Complex, the Anderson Athletic Center was originally built in the mid-19th century as a boathouse, but the renovation of the building will now create a multi-purpose athletic facility to enhance the cadet-athlete experience across multiple sports.
