New bleachers were installed in Pershing Arena over the summer. The process included removing the wooden bleachers and installing new benches and approximately 400 chair back seats. The remodel includes closer seating on the west side and additional seating on the north baseline. The project, funded by the Student Athletic Fee, began with the removal of the bleachers in late May. The former seats were installed in 1979 when the old arena court was shifted from the east/west alignment to its current north/south configuration. In addition to the bleachers, a new sound system and acoustics was installed during the summer to enhance the audio and game day presentation for Bulldog events.
