New Multi Purpose Turf Field for Poly


​​​​​​​While students were away from campus enjoying their summer break, a new turf field was installed in Lumsden/Scott Stadium on the campus of Baltimore Polytechnic Institute.

The old field was worn out after many games were played on it by Poly, and other schools without turf fields. Post season playoff games and the lack of maintenance of dragging the field after each game also added to the deterioration of the old field, which was in poor condition, rutted, torn and faded. The new field, which is still in the process of being installed, will provide an outstanding surface for our teams. The new field is being lined for multi use such as soccer, lacrosse and naturally football.

The weather has slowed the process of installation, however, the field is slated for completion prior to the opening of the Fall season. Please stop by and take a look. A sample of the new field is also on display in the Poly Alumni and Foundation office. 

Other improvements in the physical education department include refinishing the gym floor and the much needed updating of city and state championship banners to proudly show the success of the athletic teams at Poly. Many other projects are being evaluated for funding to enhance and improve the overall appearance and capabilities of the physical education complex at Poly.

If anyone is interested in visiting this portion of our campus to see first hand the needs and might be interested in helping out, please contact Mr. Phil Thompson, Athletic Director at Poly. Phil can be reached by email at PMThompson@bcps.k12.md.us.
