Louisburg Hurricanes Dedicate
Winstead Training Facility

President LaBranche

Louisburg College dedicated the Winstead Training Facility Saturday, November 8. The building, made possible by a gift from Thomas A. and Peggy Winstead, was completed this fall and is adjacent to Cotten Field. The new space features a covered warm-up and training area where our Lady Canes can run drills in all seasons, and comes complete with a team locker room including restroom and laundry facilities.

"We are blessed to have a facility like this to call home. Our players recognize that it's rare to have a resource like this in a school our size - and in larger four-year institutions for that matter. It's an incredible asset to our players and to our program and we are grateful for it," says Coach Hope Creasy. The Hurricanes celebrated the dedication with a double-header win played against a traveling club team.

Thomas and Peggy Winstead of Nashville, NC, are parents of Brandy Winstead Frazier '00, former player and assistant coach of the Hurricanes Softball Team. As long-time believers in the strength of the Louisburg College Athletics Program, to the Winsteads, the decision to give was a simple one. They are glad to see that the program is going strong, and look forward to seeing the team's successes enhanced by the opportunities that the training center affords.
