Blue Mountain College to break ground on sports complex

BLUE MOUNTAIN, Miss. – Blue Mountain College will break ground on its new sports complex at 1 p.m., Monday, December 3.

“This will be a big day for the BMC athletic programs,” said Dr. Barbara Childers McMillin, president. “Our programs have more than doubled in the past few years, and these facilities will ensure continued growth. With a new sports facility in progress and a new membership in the Southern States Athletic Conference effective Fall 2013, we are excited about what the future holds for our Blue Mountain College student-athletes.”

DIRECTIONS TO SPORTS COMPLEX:

From Highway 15, turn into the main BMC entrance. Cross over the railroad tracks … turn right immediately at Stop sign. Drive one-half mile. The site will be on the right side of the road.
