YOUNG-WISE MEMORIAL STADIUM
Opened in 2013, Young-Wise Memorial Stadium hosts the Hendrix Football, Men's Lacrosse and Track & Field teams. The stadium opened on September 7, 2013, a day in which the resurgent Warrior
Football team won it's first game of the modern era against Westminster College 46-44 in thrilling fashion with a last second field goal. The new stadium was dedicated on Nov. 9, 2013, before the Warriors' football game with Rhodes College with the families of fallen heros and Hendrix alums, Robert Young, Benjamin, and Jeremy Wise.
Young-Wise Stadium is home to Crafton-Faulkner Field, the surface that Warrior Athletics programs use to compete in Fall and Spring sports. A state-of-the-art facility, Young-Wise Stadium represents the outstanding commitment Hendrix College and its administration have to athletic excellence, in addition to being one of the top academic institutions in the South and the best in Arkansas.
