IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING RON ROBERTS FIELD AT THE BANTA BOWL
As we enter the 2015 soccer season, please note that Ron Roberts Field at the Banta Bowl remains under construction. While the facility is ready for play, not all amenties are open for fans so special procedures are in place until further notice.
All fans must enter through the visitors gate on the east side of the stadium (the side opposite the press box). Please walk down along the north side of the visitors stands and make your way along the north boundary of the field to reach the home stands. For soccer matches, all fans are required to sit in the home stands opposite the benches. No entry will be permitted through the main gate since construction is still taking place in that area. The west gate is for entry and exit of the teams only.
Parking is available in the Mead Pool lot on John Street and along Banta Court. Portable bathroom facilities are located on the east side of the stadium and just beyond the north end zone.
Thanks for your patience and understanding as we work through the completion of the facility.
A solid and steady performer since being elevated to varsity status in 1982, the women's soccer program has been one of the top teams in the Midwest Conference over the past decade. Lawrence captured the Midwest Conference championship in 2000 and won MWC Tournament titles in 2000, 2001 and 2010. The Vikings played in the NCAA Division III Tournament in 2000, 2001, 2010 and 2011, and Lawrence was the first MWC team ever to win a NCAA Tournament game. The Vikings play a schedule against conference opponents as well as teams from outside the conference, including top-level Division III opponents. The season culminates with a four-team conference tournament held in early November.
