Field of Dreams

The College announced March 8 that it will invest more than $2.6 million in a significant renovation and repair project of Steel Field Athletic Complex.

The project, which is part of an Athletic Master Plan approved by the board of trustees in 2003, includes an artificial playing surface for football, lacrosse, and intramurals; and an eight-lane NCAA-competition track.

The newly surfaced playing area will be called Rocco Calvo Field, in recognition of Moravianís legendary athletics director and football, basketball, and baseball coach (1955-92). The expanded track will continue to be known as Breidegam Track, in honor of the late Timothy Breidegam í78.

The project also involves structural repair to the 88- year-old grandstand at the complex, including replacement of its underlying structural steel, waterproofing its exterior, painting its interior, and repairing its ceiling.

Work on these projects has begun. The plan is to complete construction by opening day of next fallís football season.
