Please Fix Exeter's Hatch Field
Hatch Field was intended for use by Exeter's lacrosse, soccer & field hockey teams. The fundraising campaign promised alumni and parent donors a new facility that could be enjoyed by multiple Exeter teams. Unfortunately, a hard surface similar to old-school AstroTurf was installed on the field. Because this surface is dangerous for any sport other than field hockey, no other varsity team is willing to use Hatch Field. This deprives hundreds of Exeter athletes from a safe option for practice and games during inclement weather and the early spring.
Please sign our petition to encourage our beloved Exeter to honor the original goals of the fundraising campaign and protect our athletes. It is relatively inexpensive to replace the current field hockey surface with a safer, deep-pile product from the same manufacturer.
