Campus is abuzz with summer construction, including renovation of athletic facilities. Thanks to the generous philanthropic investment of Taft alumni, parents, and friends, a significant renovation of Camp Field, Snyder Field, and the rink in Odden Arena is underway. Renovations began at Camp Field last month with the removal of the 13-year-old turf. "Given the age of the field and the fact that the school had made spot-repairs to the turf in recent years, this project was much needed," Head of School Willy MacMullen '78 said of Camp Field. Snyder Field will be converted to a turf field, a change that will help ameliorate longstanding drainage issues and degradation of soil conditions over the years. In Odden, the Olympic size playing surface will be replaced with a slightly narrower NHL size playing surface, which is the standard for secondary and collegiate hockey programs.
