May 16 Pep Rally Marks Ground Breaking for Track and Turf Upgrade at Otterbein

May 6, 2014

Westerville, OH — Otterbein University will host a pep rally to celebrate the ground breaking of a track and turf upgrade project at 11 a.m. on Friday, May 16, at Memorial Stadium, 180 Center St. The new artificial field turf at Dwight C. Ballenger Field and a brand new track surface on the McVay Track will culminate a decade of renovations to Memorial Stadium.

The entire Otterbein community will benefit from the new, state-of-the-art field turf and track surfaces. More than 500 student-athletes each year will have opportunities to practice and compete at the stadium's updated facilities. Additionally, all students will have access to recreational sports opportunities and special events on the field and track. An expansion of the playing field will allow Memorial Stadium to become the home of not only football and men's lacrosse, but also men's soccer, women's soccer, and women's lacrosse. Improvements to the track surface will allow Otterbein to host its first outdoor track meet since 2007.
