From the 1984 State Championship field hockey team to the undefeated 2017 Middle School Lacrosse team, Tatnall’s field hockey and girls lacrosse programs have always been a force on campus and in the community. To celebrate and recognize these incredible programs in 2017 The Tatnall School completed its newest facilities upgrade - the best in class turf field for the field hockey and girls lacrosse programs.
The field has an AstroTurf Golden Series DT32 system, a deliberate and sophisticated turf structure. The system uses no rubber, yields cooler surface temperatures, requires no water and can withstand heavy use. The system is created via a “green” process and is California Proposition 65 compliant.
Since all Division I National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) tournaments will take place on AstroTurf for the next four years, the new field will take Tatnall’s athletic program to the next level of competitive play. By competing on this new field our talented and committed student-athletes will be prepared for the next stages of their athletic careers at colleges and universities.
This project is one of several upcoming projects that support the Strategic Priority #3 – Inspirational and Extraordinary Campus.
