Canterbury Board of Trustees Approves State-of-the-Art Second Turf for Athletics and Student Life

Kelly Slonaker

During our winter Board of Trustees meetings, Canterbury’s Trustees approved Phase II of our Athletic Field Master Plan. This will include a second turf field on the east end of campus, adjacent to the site of the Sheehy Family Field, our existing turf. The multi-purpose complex will feature a state-of-the-art, all-weather, all-season artificial playing field and a six-lane track with lights. This facility will significantly improve practices and competitions, and will ensure optimal safety for our athletes. In addition to enhancing our athletic programs, the new turf complex will expand outdoor student life offerings, providing a well-lighted location for myriad activities, no matter the weather or time of day. The project is planned for the 2020-2021 academic year.
