The MBU Spartan Field and Field House are two of the new additions and highlights of the university. This video will take you through a few of the different sights from both the field and the house led by Dr. Tom Smith, director of athletics.
The Spartans battled all season and showed some resilience in the majority of the games. Although a new program, the Spartan football team will be building to make a run in their third season of existence in the Mid-States Football Association in the Mideast league. With a new facility, new recruits and another year of experience, the Spartans will certainly improve in the 2016 season.
