Barnett Athletic Complex


Formerly known as Barnett Athletic Field

In 2016, Florida Southern College announced the renovation of its on-campus athletic fields, which serve the Soccer teams, the Lacrosse teams, and the Softball team. Completion was scheduled for the end of 2017, but weather complications, including Hurricane Irma, delayed the project. In February 2018, the fields and facilities were completed and inaugurated with a ceremony led by President Anne Kerr. The softball field is named Chris Bellotto Field after Chris Bellotto (Class of 1980) who was Florida Southern's first ever Softball coach and led the 1993 team to the College's first NCAA Division II National Championship title in women's sports. Bellotto was part of the inaugural class of Florida Southern Athletics' Hall of Fame and retired in 2020 after a long coaching career. Initially, the soccer and lacrosse field had been named Moccasin Field; however, in 2021, the field was dedicated to Trustee Dr. Keith Berend (Class of 1992). In 2020, the Barnett Athletic Complex also served as a training location for the USA Softball team in preparation for the 2020 Olympic Games. Team USA returned to train at the Barnett Complex in 2021 when the games were rescheduled.
