In the summer of 2014, Rappolt Field underwent a $1.2 million renovation. The improvements included a complete replacement of the playing surface and the addition of a permanent irrigation system. Rappolt Field's new playing surface is Astroturf 12, the company's latest product designed specifically for field hockey.
All of Lafayette's field sports have benefited from the construction of the state-of-the-art AstroTurf field in 2000. The field features AstroTurf XL12, one of AstroTurf's most advanced products. The facility features bleachers, a scoreboard and lights. Construction of the turf was made possible by a gift from 1967 Lafayette alum, Bill Rappolt. Rappolt Field provided the backdrop for the 2002 Field Hockey Patriot League Tournament.
