Jim Darden Field

The Clear Creek Athletic Complex includes the new Marv Kay Stadium at Campbell Field, Stermole Soccer Stadium, Mines Softball Field, Jim Darden Field and the Stermole Track and Field Complex. There have been significant renovations to the Darden field, soccer arena and track & field complex and a complete teardown of Campbell Field, making room for the 4,090-seat Marv Kay Stadium. In addition to these renovations in 2015, a concessions stand, restrooms and storage facility were built to support the soccer and track & field complexes.

Marv Kay Stadium at Campbell Field and the Harold M. and Patricia M. Korell Athletics Center combine to provide Colorado School of Mines football one of the best and most modern homes in NCAA Division II. Opened in 2015 on the site of historic Campbell Field, the stadium seats more than 4,000 fans and houses locker rooms, a weight room and equipment room, football offices and meeting spaces, as well as a press row.

Harold Korell, a 1968 graduate, has been a long-time donor to Mines. The Harold and Patricia Korell Athletic Center was named after their generous gift to support the Clear Creek Athletic Complex. The Korells have also supported the the Korell Mens’ Basketball Scholarship, the Korell Scholarship Endowment and Marquez Hall. While at Mines, Harold played varsity basketball and was a member of Beta Theta Pi fraternity.

The stadium is also used for events including Spring Commencement. It is also the site of the annual freshman class photo.

Stermole Soccer Stadium, named in honor of Frank and Dot Stermole in the fall of 2014, is the home of the Oredigger men’s and women’s soccer teams. Located in the heart of the Clear Creek Athletic Complex, it is one of the top soccer-specific facilities in NCAA Division II and even rivals many Division I stadiums.

Jim Darden Field is home to the Mines baseball team. The fully lit stadium has seating accommodations for 500 spectators and commanding views of Golden and North Table Mountain behind the outfield fence. Named in honor of longtime Mines coach Jim Darden, the stadium was originally built in 1937 as a Depression-era project of the Public Works Administration. The amphitheater-style seating is built of fieldstone with flagstone bench seating carved into the hillside. Substantial renovations in 2007 restored the original historic seating bowl added a new press box and dugouts, and saw a new scoreboard built in right field.

Stermole Track & Field Complex is located just west of Marv Kay Stadium and serves as the home for outdoor track & field. The facility can seat 500 spectators, an in-house FinishLynx timing system and competition-quality lights for night events. The artificial turf infield serves as a practice option for multiple other Mines sports, as well as the home field for several of Mines’ club teams. The Crouch Field Events Complex is located on the west side of the track and contains an international-spec throwing cage, two shot put circles and a javelin runway. In 2015, the complex added a support building, shared with the adjacent Stermole Soccer Stadium, which adds meeting rooms and storage for the track & field program. New locker rooms and coaches’ offices for both track & field and cross country are a part of the Korell Athletics Center at Marv Kay Stadium, located next to the track.
