33 FALL 2017 The Marching Cards take the field as fire- works burst at a home game against Clemson in the fall 2017 season. Construction is visible as renovations continue to bring Papa John's Cardi- nal Stadium full circle. The Women's Vol- leyball team took on the Western Kentucky Hilltoppers in the com- pleted Cardinal Arena, equipped with improved fan seating. Along with stadium renovations, the Howard Schnellenberger Football Complex will get a facelift, complete with upgraded meeting room, lounge and theater. The weight room and con- ditioning center will be nearly doubled, enhancing the training experience. The new stadium section is pro- jected to open in time for the 2018 season. Cardinal Arena Renovations The women's volleyball team returned to Cardinal Arena for the full 2017 sea- son after playing at the YUM! Center since 2011. They came back to a reno- vated space dedicated exclusively to volleyball. The Cardinal Arena court received upgrades to the floor, bleachers and lights, while additional seating and an end-zone mezzanine were added for fans. The facility also features a full-ser- vice concessions venue serving food, soft drinks and beer. The $600,000 renovation included team offices, locker rooms and training areas also located in the Swain Student Activities Center. The volleyball team previously played at Cardinal Arena from 1991 through 2010.
