Allen Arena


Completed in 2001, Allen Arena is a versatile facility hosting athletic events, on campus convocations, and other events such as dinners, concerts, area-wide worship services, and graduations. The arena is primarily used for basketball and volleyball athletic events and is also used for daily chapel services and occasional concerts.

The arena was named in honor of James C. and Linda Allen, the facility's primary benefactors. Allen Arena has served as host to the TSSAA Division II basketball championships since 2005.
