Construction on a $15 million, 100,000 square-foot fieldhouse will begin this spring.

“We want students to choose Mount Marty because they know they can succeed here," MMC Athletic Director Chris Kassin said in a press release Tuesday. "To do that, we need to offer top-of-the-line facilities."

The fieldhouse will offer a host of elements, including a 74,000 square-foot event space with a 200-meter, eight-lane track as well as a 7,500 square-foot weight training and fitness facility, which will be open to both the MMC and Yankton community members through a proposed partnership with GreatLIFE.

It is scheduled to be completed in July 2020.
