Construction of the University of Kentucky’s Nutter Field House on May 29, 1992. In the background is Commonwealth Stadium, home of the football Wildcats. The $8.5 million indoor practice center was dedicated on Sept. 3, 1993. The climate-controlled structure, used for winter conditioning and indoor track and field meets, features an artificial turf football playing field of 108,000 square feet, surrounded by a six-lane, 290-meter track. It also has an electronic netting system that allows for various combinations of sports to practice safely and simultaneously by dividing the playing field into multiple practice areas. The fieldhouse has hosted six SEC Indoor Track and Field Championships. Photo by Charles Bertram | Staff
