Pritchett Field Face Lift
The Huntsville Item discusses the goings-on at the historic Pritchett Field, the original home of Bearkat football and current home of women's soccer:
Equipment sits idle at the lower end of Pritchett Field Friday [June 22] afternoon. Sam Houston State University is taking advantage of summer months to renovate the field before school begins in the fall. For the lower field, where the soccer team plays, SHSU is refurbishing the underground plumbing, draining and electrical systems. It is all scheduled to be completed by the second week of September. Work on the upper field is referred to as the Pritchett Field Artificial Turf Project, which calls for replacing the old turf with 87,119 feet of synthetic turf.
