Three Cheers for Alumni Field

Three Cheers for Alumni Field

In time for A-term, WPI completed the renovation of the Alumni Field complex, including the installation of new turf (the same used at Gillette Stadium, home of the New England Patriots), new bleachers and press box on the west side of the field, a scoreboard, and a field lighting system. The existing eight-lane track was resurfaced, and, during Homecoming Weekend in September, was named for legendary WPI coach Merl Norcross, who was head track and field coach for 42 seasons and served the Athletic Department for 53 years.

This renovation project was made possible by the generosity of several WPI alumni and their spouses—Janet and George Abdow ’53, Mary Anne and James Carr ’74, Barbara and Peter Horstmann ’55, Nancy and Barrie Peterson ’67, Ruth and Don Taylor ’49, and Sandra and David Van Covern ’53.
