Foley Enners Nathe Lacrosse Center

[original story from goarmysports.com]
Both the men's and women's lacrosse programs have officially moved into the new top-notch Foley, Enners, Nathe Lacrosse Center. The FEN Lacrosse Center is named after former classmates William Foley '67, Lt. Ray Enners '67 and Michael Nathe '67. "We are so fortunate to call the new FEN Center the home of Army men's and women's lacrosse," said the Noto Family Head Women's Lacrosse Coach Kristen Skiera. "The attention to detail within the building and the location in the corner of Michie Stadium shows immense dedication to Army Lacrosse.

This top-notch facility will serve our cadet-athletes in so many ways and undoubtedly contribute to the tradition of excellence of Army athletics." The 15,000-square-foot-facility will feature two floors nestled in the northeast corner of historic Michie Stadium. The first floor contains locker rooms for Army West Point's men's and women's lacrosse teams in addition to equipment and athletic training rooms, and coaches' locker rooms. While the equipment room features a rolling rack storage system and laundry room, the training room includes six treatment tables, a physician's office, ice machine and Grimm dual therapy pool.

Spacious team rooms that open prominently to the scenic second floor terrace overlooking the majestic stadium and a multi-purpose room highlights the building's second floor. "The FEN Center is a top level facility that will deliver the very best for the men's and women's lacrosse programs for years to come," said men's lacrosse head coach Joe Alberici. "The commitment to provide our cadet-athletes with this state of the art facility is a further testament to the importance athletics and in particular lacrosse plays in developing future leaders for our Army and the Nation. "A special thank you to Mr. Bill Foley and our alumni for their generosity in funding this project. I would also like to thank Superintendent LTG Caslen and Mr. Boo Corrigan for their leadership in FEN Lacrosse Center Locker Roommaking the vision of this premier facility for the Army Lacrosse Family into a reality."

Foley is a name familiar to Army West Point athletics as he has his name on the Foley Athletic Center, which is a massive 77,000-square foot indoor facility on the opposite side of Michie Stadium. Foley and his wife, Carol, have been tremendous supporters of Army West Point athletics and the United States Military Academy and this adds more to that legacy.

Enners was a three-year letter winner for the Army lacrosse program and was a 1967 United States Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association Honorable Mention All-American. Enners was killed in action in Vietnam in 1968 and received the Distinguished Service Cross, the Bronze Star and the Purple Heart, for his service. He still has an impact on the lacrosse community today as the Lt. Raymond Enners Award is presented to the USILA NCAA National Player of the Year in men's lacrosse.

Nathe was a member of the lacrosse and wrestling team at West Point. He volunteered for duty in Vietnam as his first assignment out of the Academy. Nathe was killed in action in 1968 and earned the Silver Star; Bronze Star; Purple Heart; National Order of Vietnam, 5th Class; Gallantry Cross and the Combat Infantryman's Badge. The design of The FEN Lacrosse Center continues along the aesthetics established by Kimsey Athletic Center and Randall Hall, two of Army West Point's marquee athletic facilities located on the opposite end of Michie Stadium.
