Kornegay Arena

Opened in 1984, George and Annie Dail Kornegay Arena is the home for Trojan men's and women's basketball and men's and women's volleyball.

In the summer of 2014, the Kornegay Arena floor got a facelift to accommodate the school name change to University of Mount Olive (UMO).

Kornegay Arena is the home of one of the longest-running college basketball tournaments in the nation, the Annual University of Mount Olive Pickle Classic. The first Pickle Classic took place in 1966. The first Pickle Classic to take place at Kornegay Arena was in 1984.

Another UMO tradition at Kornegay Arena gained national recognition. The Annual University of Mount Olive Men's and Women's Basketball Church Night was among 10 events to be recognized as a 2010-11 NCAA Division II Game Environment Award of Excellence winner.

Mount Olive has won two Conference Carolinas men's basketball championships (2008, 2010) and two Conference Carolinas men's volleyball championships (2010, 2011) at Kornegay Arena.

Kornegay Arena was the site of the 2006 (then) Carolinas-Virginia Athletics Conference Men's and Women's Basketball Final Four and the 2009 Conference Carolinas Women's Basketball Championship Game.

In addition to Trojan basketball and volleyball, Kornegay Arena hosts the annual indoor soccer tournament and area high school basketball conference championships.

Kornegay Arena is also used for non-athletic events, such as commencement and the annual Original Free Will Baptist Convention.

Originally named College Hall, it was renamed Kornegay Arena in 2005 after a donation by George Kornegay.
