New Grass in the Whitney Gymnasium

While there may be snow outside, there is new grass (artificial turf) in the Whitney Gymnasium! While searching for protective covers for the new wood floor in the gym, Athletic Director Brooks Johnson and Head of School Brad Bates came up with the idea for adding turf to the gym to convert the space into a field house for team sports when not in use for basketball. Johnson found an affordable solution after contacting a dealer who specializes in overstock turf supplies. The lacrosse team, with the help of Johnson and Board President Peter Imhoff, spent the last day of lacrosse camp installing the turf today. The new turf will allow the lacrosse and ultimate Frisbee teams to practice without having to travel to find dry ground. It was great to see the excitement written all over our student--athletes' faces today!
