MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - In response to a recent WSFA editorial which endorsed Troy University for elevation to a higher conference within the NCAA, a viewer commented that Troy University's athletics facilities, with the exception of the football stadium, would not warrant a change in conferences for the Trojans. 

This statement ignores the fact that over the last decade the University has invested more than $80 million in new or renovated athletics facilities. This includes new venues for baseball, tennis, softball, rodeo, soccer/track and the current construction of a new arena for basketball and volleyball. On the drawing board are plans for expansion of Veterans Memorial Stadium, the upgrading of the Lunsford Tennis Complex and a new practice facility for golf. 

This investment has equipped Trojan athletics with facilities that equal or exceed those of many member institutions of mid-level conferences such as Conference USA, the Mountain West, the Mid-American Conference and other Division I-A conferences.  May we suggest that all within the WSFA viewing audience travel to Troy to witness first hand the transformation of a university—in athletics and academics.  If you do you will see an institution that reflects the highest standards of the NCAA!
