Haws Field is a natural grass soccer field completed in October 2013. It was constructed as a part of a larger athletic facilities renovation project worth $12 million. This project also included the construction of a baseball field, tennis courts, a football practice field, and dome. Haws Field was part of phase one of this project which began construction in 2012. The field was completely replaced and reseed with grass turf that was roughly 18 inches thick.
Coborn’s Inc. donated $400,000 to Saint John’s University for the completion of the new field. The field was dedicated to Pat Haws, retired head SJU soccer coach, on August 30 th, 2013.
The facility included the field, team dugouts, bleachers, and a scoreboard.
