New track and field unveiled at Holyoke High School

The multi-purpose playing field has been re-done with new, synthetic turf

HOLYOKE, Mass. (WWLP) – Holyoke unveiled the high school’s new track and playing field Friday night at the Roberts Field Sports Complex.

Mayor Alex Morse and the Parks and Recreational Commissioners held the re-dedication right before the kick-off of the Holyoke varsity football game against Springfield Central High on Gilligan Field.

The upgrades cost Holyoke $1.4-million, but Mayor Morse said it was worth the investment; “Number one, it’s a good selling point for our community and there’s no better investment than investing in quality of life like parks. But it’s also about safety for our students.”

The multi-purpose playing field has been re-done with new, synthetic turf. The eight lane track was named in honor of long-time coaches Bill and Eileen Kane.
