Comments:

Pritchett Field, site of Sam Houston State women's soccer home matches, is one of the university's most historic spots. Named for the late Joseph Pritchett, a professor for 42 years and Dean of Men at Sam Houston, Pritchett Field was the site of the university's earliest athletic competitions. The SHNI football team, nicknamed the Normals, played their first game at Pritchett Field on October 6, 1912, losing to Rice 20-6, the first football contest played by either school. The Work Progress Administration constructed the stone bleachers on both sides of Pritchett Field in the 1930s.
