Softball dedication ceremony postponed until March 23


KLAMATH FALLS, Ore. - Due to the uncertainty of weather, and current field conditions, the Dedication Ceremony for the new John and Lois Stilwell Stadium originally scheduled for this Saturday has been postponed until next Saturday, March 23 at 1:00 pm.

The two softball doubleheaders scheduled for this weekend against Southern Oregon University are still up in the air as to whether they will be played in Klamath Falls or Ashland, stay tuned to for updates.

The Dedication Ceremony will now take place between games of the Lady Owls' doubleheader with Carroll College on March 23 at approximately 1:00 PM. Game one of the doubleheader is scheduled to begin at 11:00 am - game tickets available for purchase at the gate.  

Oregon Tech Athletics Director John Van Dyke said, "Having a softball stadium of this caliber is a game-changer.  I'm so happy for Coach Stewart and his softball team.  The coaches can now focus on coaching rather than field maintenance.  John and Lois Stilwell's gift will benefit OIT athletes for generations." 

The John and Lois Stilwell Stadium is dedicated in honor of John and Lois's generous philanthropy to Oregon Tech. This first-rate softball complex is made possible by the vision of the Stilwells and their lead gift.

Their passion for academic excellence, athletics, and student success motivated John and Lois to generously support the University in many ways, including capital projects, student travel, and endowed scholarships which make it possible for numerous students to pursue their educational and professional dreams, now and in the future.
