The Dedication Ceremony for the new John and Lois Stilwell Stadium originally scheduled for this Saturday has also been postponed, it 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.
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.
