Since its inception, the Alumni Varsity ‘D’ Club has supported capital improvements for Defiance College athletics. The past years of projects included construction of a softball pressbox, refinishing of the McMaster/Weaner Center gym floors, bleachers for the soccer field, improvements to the Hohenberger Lounge and a new baseball and softball scoreboard. Over 30 projects, covering every sport, have been completed throughout the years. Thank you for your past and continued support of athletics at Defiance College.
