The Bacon Field House - Wrestling

The Bacon Field House, named for C. Everett Bacon '13, an All-American quarterback at Wesleyan, houses a 200-meter, six lane track as its main component. The infield area allows for numerous activities and is the site for some of Wesleyan's home wrestling matches.  The Cardinals hosted the 2002 NECCWA Duals and had seven mats in the Field House for the event.  In 2014, Wesleyan was the site of the Northeast Regional Wrestling Tournament (photo) with the top three finishers in each weight class qualifying for the NCAA Division III Championships.  The infield also facilitates the use of four tennis courts, three basketball courts, six volleyball courts or six badminton courts. The facility is integral for providing Wesleyan spring sports teams with an indoor opportunity to practice in February and March, in conjunction with two artificial surfaced outdoor fields, before the outdoor grass fields are ready for use. The Bacon Field House has been the site of many regional and national track meets, including the 1991 NCAA Division III Indoor Track Championships.
