The prospect for competing in any sport at the college level is the dream of most high-school athletes.

However, the vast majority cannot realize their dreams at Division I or II colleges. This is why smaller colleges offer great opportunities for many high-school graduates. These potential college athletes will be attracted to schools offering both excellent scholastic and state-of-the-art athletic facilities.

Everyone likes to be associated with a first-class organization. So it seems reasonable that the new St. Ambrose University sports complex will fill this bill. It will offer an attractive option for many of these former student athletes to remain in the Quad-Cities after graduation and become valued area residents.
