Los Angeles, CA (April 28) - Loyola Marymount University Athletics will dedicated the George P. Kading and Morris A Pivaroff Tournament Court at the LMU Tennis Center on Sunday, May 2 at 11 a.m. The Kading and Morris Tournament Court is the long-awaited sixth tennis court at the facility.
Construction of the sixth court took place thanks in part to a $50,000 gift from A.G. [BusAdmin '72] and Kathleen Kading. The tournament court will play a key role in one of the Athletics Department's campaign goals- building facilities that support and encourage the highest standards of athletic performance at Loyola Marymount University. The court is named in honor of the Kading's fathers Morris A. Pivaroff and George P. Kading.
The dedication will come at the end of the court's construction, which began the first of February. The ceremony will include the Kadings, LMU President Rev. Robert B. Lawton, S.J., and LMU Athletics Director Dr. William S. Husak. The event will begin at 11 a.m.with a reception following the dedication. For more information contact (310) 338- 5278
"The building of a sixth tennis court is another example of the commitment of the university and its supporters toward building a championship athletics program," said Husak. "It is a visible example of our efforts to create quality facilities for our student-athletes to practice and compete in and for our fans to cheer them to victory."
Two gifts of $25,000 each, given by Erik Doyle [BBA '84], a former men's tennis player, and the Ron Labetich family, parents of two tennis alumni, will name two of the remaining five tennis courts.
