ETBU's soccer field, which opened in 2002, was christened Cornish Field in 2007 following a gift for facility upgrade from Harold and Joyce Cornish of Marshall.
The lighted field, which began construction in 2000 and was open and ready for play to start the 2002 season, sits on the extreme northern edge of the ETBU campus adjacent to Ornelas Stadium, ETBU's football facility.
The improvement to the facility included installation of permanent bleachers, concrete walkways, a retaining wall that will allow fans to bring their own lawn chairs and enjoy the games, and a wrought iron decorative fence on the south side of the field as well as updated fencing around the entire field. The entrance is bricked with a decorative archway bearing the name of the donor.
Opened in 2002, the facility is accessible by a road -- Baker Boulevard, courtesy of Mr. and Mrs. Ed Baker -- that runs down the west side of Ornelas Stadium on the north end of campus. The soccer field runs east to west with bleachers to the south side of the field. The north side is used for team benches and scorer’s table.
A platform over the scorer’s table is used for video. A large soccer scoreboard sits at the east end of the complex.
Lights were added to the facility in the fall of 2005. The lights were purchased with a gift in honor of former Lady Tiger Brooke Adair, a 2000-03 four-year letter winner at ETBU.
Team Locker Room & Amenities
To begin the 2016 Fall Campaign, the Tigers were welcomed home to brand new locker room facilities. The space provides a new home for the Tigers off the playing field. It was created with the vision of creating a family atmosphere, and giving the men and place to call their own.
This facility is complete with state of the art lockers for each individual player, kitchen, bathrooms, study areas, and Bollinger Den, which is complete with seating areas, 55” Television, and gaming consoles.
Both Cornish Field and Team Facilities are located on the campus of East Texas Baptist University.
