Kohn Field Renovation (2011)
In the summer of 2011, Middlebury replaced Kohn Field, but the 95,000 square feet of astroturf that covered the field found a new life as it was parceled out for miniature golf courses and other recreational facilities. A big piece of the carpet–nearly 20% –will stay right in Middlebury as a gift to the town’s rec. center. The new Kohn Field will be no ordinary turf. As part of the reconstruction the field includes a recessed sprinkler system to wet down the field before field hockey games. This creates world-class playing conditions says Coach Katharine DeLorenzo.
