During the 1996 Summer Olympics, Herndon Stadium hosted field hockey. It was also used as the stand-in for the demolished Fairfield Stadium in Huntington, West Virginia during filming of the 2006 movie We Are Marshall.
Due to the college's financial hardships, the stadium has been abandoned and fell into a state of disrepair, gutted by vandals and covered in graffiti and trash.
