Norwich dedicates athletic facility

Posted: Updated:

NORTHFIELD, Vt. (AP) - Vermont's Norwich University has dedicated its renovated athletic facility.

The Haynes Family Stadium at Sabine Field is named for 1958 graduate Fred Haynes and his wife who donated a generous gift to the project, which included the $6 million renovation of the field.

The renovation created a multi-sport, multi-activity stadium that features a synthetic turf field that will meet NCAA regulations for football, men's and women's soccer, and men's and women's lacrosse.

The athletic facility was dedicated on Friday during Homecoming festivities.

The renovated field was inaugurated last month prior to the Norwich football team's home opener against St. Lawrence University.
