It was an emotional and historic evening at Mishawaka High School on Friday October 5, 2018, as we dedicated the new 8-lane track, the Irions Strength and Conditioning Center, and other recent enhancements at Steele Stadium.  Founder of ASA Electronics in Elkhart, Tom Irions a 1969 MHS graduate, was honored with the Exemplar Trophy for his support and generous contribution that will serve Mishawaka Students for years to come.

Built in 1939 and called Tupper Field, the stadium was formally dedicated in 1980 and named Steele Stadium after legendary coach Frank Steele.  Fans were able to see for the first time the complete renovation of Alumni Plaza.  The entrance leads you not only to the football field, but also to the new 8-lane track that includes one of the largest and clearest scoreboard/video boards in the state
