Kerscher Stadium was the first athletic facility to be built after the purchase of the Sleesman Farm in 1989. It pre-dated the Dial-Roberson Stadium and originally consisted of an un-named track with a playing field in the center. During the summer of 2013, it was upgraded with the addition of artificial turf, outdoor lighting, a Daktronics scoreboard and seating for 400 spectators. The opening soccer games were played on October 12, 2013.
The stadium serves as the home to both the Ohio Northern men's and women's soccer programs, as well as the men's and women's outdoor track & field team. It was dedicated on September 20, 2014.
The facility is named in honor of Dr. Robert Kerscher and his wife, Barbara Kerscher. Dr. Robert Kerscher, a member of the Board of Trustees of ONU, is the founder, retired chairman and chief executive officer of Lexi-Comp Inc., an Ohio-based medical publisher. Robert Kerscher earned his Bachelor of Science in Business Administration from Ohio Northern in 1970 and his MBA from Baldwin-Wallace College in 1978. Barbara Kerscher is a graduate of Bowling Green State University.
