Field surface: from arsenic to turf

The Field Hockey team may be getting a new field sooner than originally planned.

"It is possible we [will] have a new field in by early spring; although it is sheer speculation, we need to wait and see when the University gets the field back in its possession. Weather could also play a role in the timing," said Ed McLaughlin, associate athletic director for Facilities.

McLaughlin also mentioned that it would be a best-case scenario and most likely the field would be in by middle to late spring. The field will most likely have some form of synthetic grass and will be a huge boost to the intramural program and the University community.

Another facilities note: The AU team locker rooms will be re-done at some point in the coming years. No definite timetable has been set but the school will begin fund-raising for them starting in October with the Capital Campaign.
