Southern Arkansas University and Mulerider Athletics have announced a dedication ceremony for the newly-finished Dawson Athletic Complex at 11:30 a.m. inside the facility on Saturday, Oct. 30.

Fans are encouraged to make plans to attend the ceremony, which will include brief remarks from administration, coaches, student-athletes, and donors, and then join the campus community for Mulegating at noon which will run up to that afternoon's 2 p.m. kickoff against Oklahoma Baptist from inside Wilkins Stadium at Rip Powell Field.

The 175' wide by 190' foot long by 50' foot tall facility is located directly to the east of Wilkins Stadium at Rip Powell Field and features a 60-yard turfed field with field markings for multiple sports and state-of-the-art LED lighting.

The total cost of the facility was $1.45 million, entirely funded through private support from alumni and friends, and its completion will now provide an immediate impact to over 450 student-athletes, coaches and administrators that make up the 14 athletic programs at SAU.
