ATHLETIC FACILITIES

Larry F. Kahl Gymnasium

The Larry F. Kahl Gymnasium, located in the Sports Center, is the Highland Cougars’ home basketball and volleyball court. It seats up to 1500 spectators. Attendance for Highland Cougars’ home games is often impressive; our loyal fans pack the gym to watch exciting basketball even on the coldest winter days and nights in Illinois to support our Cougars.

The gymnasium is named after the late Larry F. Kahl, one of Highland’s long-time loyal fans and supporters. Current Highland Cougars receive scholarship funds from the Kahl family.

The Cougars have had some heart-stopping victories as well as some heart-breaking losses at the Larry F. Kahl gymnasium. By only giving up one loss, our women’s volleyball team undeniably had a home court advantage during the fall 2003 season.

Basketball fans can enjoy concessions and snacks. The Cougar Baseball and Softball teams run the concessions stand. Concessions include pop, bottled water, pizza, hot dogs, chips, nachos, and candy.

The Sports Center, in partnership with the YMCA, is a comprehensive, multilevel facility. The HCC/YMCA Sports Center features locker rooms, and weight and training facilities, including Iron Works, Olympic-size 25-meter pool, three racquetball courts, two gymnasiums, 1/14-mile banked jogging track, a universal gym, Air Dyne bikes, Cybex, Transports, Nordic Track, and a rowing machine. The multipurpose facility also serves as home to Cougar Volleyball, practice area for Cougar Baseball, and has been the site of numerous summer sports camps and high school tournaments. Athletic department coaches and administrators’ offices are also located in the Sports Center.

Highland Community College hosted the 2004 NJCAA Region IV men and women’s basketball tournament. Highland hosted the NJCAA Region IV men’s tournament in 2003 and the NJCAA Region IV men and women’s tournament in 2000.

West Diamond Baseball Field

The West Diamond is the Highland Cougars home baseball field. It is located on the west side of the campus and is just seconds away from the Sports Center.

The baseball field received major improvements. The infield was resurfaced with a turf conditioner that is made from volcanic rock, which improves playability because it drains quicker than traditional lime surfaces. New dugouts and bleachers were built for both the Cougars and for visiting teams. Additional water fountains were added. New, higher fences were installed. The teams and fans can keep track of scores with a new scoreboard. With the addition of a new blacktop path, our baseball field is more easily accessible.

In addition to playing on the field, the baseball team also holds indoor practices in the Sports Center. The Sports Center, in partnership with the YMCA, is a comprehensive, multilevel facility. The HCC/YMCA Sports Center features locker rooms, and weight and training facilities, including Iron Works, Olympic-size 25-meter pool, three racquetball courts, two gymnasiums, 1/14-mile banked jogging track, a universal gym, Air Dyne bikes, Cybex, Transports, Nordic Track, and a rowing machine. The multipurpose facility also serves as home to Cougar Volleyball and Cougar Basketball, practice area for Cougar Softball, and has been the site of numerous summer sports camps and high school tournaments. Athletic department coaches and administrators’ offices are also located in the Sports Center.

With a parking lot with nearly 300 spaces located just steps away from the field and the Sports Center, visitors can easily find a parking spot. Our maps and directions section can help visitors find their way.

Softball Field

The softball diamond for the Highland Cougars home softball games is located on the west side of the campus and is just seconds away from the Sports Center.

The newly constructed field is now complete for our on-campus Cougar Softball games. The infield has been skinned with a turf conditioner that is made from volcanic rock, which will help playability because it drains quicker than traditional lime surfaces. The dugouts and bleachers were built, water fountains were added, and the scoreboard was installed. A blacktop path allows for ADA accessibility.
