The new softball facility will be top-notch. Features will include:
- Lighting (for some awesome night games)

It’s designed by McKee & Associates, an architecture firm out of Montgomery that has designed stadiums for Auburn University, Troy University and Jacksonville State University.

The new softball team, the NACC Mustangs, will be led by Coach Joe Guthrie. The team is expected to start playing at the new field in fall 2023. In a NACC press release on July 31, the president of NACC said:
“We are very happy to bring women’s softball to the college level. There is much excitement in our area in anticipation of our starting a women’s softball program at Northeast. I am a real fan of women’s softball myself.”Dr. David Campbell, President, NACC
We can’t wait to cheer on the NACC Mustangs!
