PROVIDENCE, R.I. - On Saturday, April 16, Providence College Athletics celebrated the grand opening of Glay Field, the new home of the Softball program prior to the doubleheader matchup against BIG EAST foe St. John's.  The ceremony featured a blessing by President Rev. Brian J. Shanley, O.P. '80 and ribbon cutting by Athletic Director Bob Driscoll, Sr. Vice President John Sweeney, Associate Vice President Mark Rapoza, Executive Associate Athletic Director/SWA Jill LaPoint, Head Coach Kerri Jacklets '01, Assistant Coaches Kathy McLaughlin and Kristie Dederick '15, and seniors, Kelsi Luttrell, Danielle Deraney, Annie DeRosa, Kiara Amos, Kiki Baldassari, along with over 50 Friar softball alumni.

The new multi-million dollar softball stadium holds close to 300 fans, while featuring the best amenities possible. The field is highlighted by a state of the art synthetic playing surface, Musco lighting, heated press box and dugouts with bathrooms. In addition to game information and player development software capabilities, the field also features three batting cages and two bullpens.

Providence College Athletics is most grateful to Lynn Souza '97 along with Mark & Karen Rurka '18P for their leadership gifts towards the softball program along with many former alumni, fans, and parents who generously contributed to this project.
