New Turf Installation Wrapping Up, Kibler Field to Host Games Next Week

CHESTERTOWN, Md. -- The installation of the new turf on Kibler Field at Roy Kirby, Jr. Stadium is wrapping up this weekend and the facility is scheduled to host this season's remaining home varsity soccer and field hockey home contests beginning Tuesday.

With the ability to once again play night games, the men's soccer home game against Swarthmore on Tuesday has been changed from a 3:30 p.m. to a 7:00 p.m. start time. The women's soccer home game against Haverford on Wednesday has been changed from a 4:00 p.m. to a 7:00 p.m. start time as well. The field hockey regular-season finale on Saturday, November 1st, remains a 1:00 p.m. start. Tomorrow's women's soccer home game against Franklin & Marshall is slated to be the last game held on the College's Lower Bermuda Grass Field.

The move back into Roy Kirby, Jr. Stadium also means that those three games (as well as any postseason contests the College may host this fall) will also have live video webcasts available at http://GooseNationTV.com.

An historic rainstorm in August destroyed the previous turf surface, which was nearly nine years old. The new surface was produced by Shaw Sports Turf and features George Washington's iconic signature above a "Washington College" wordmark on the midfield surface on the grandstand side of the field.
