New Sports Fields for Centre

Centre College is moving forward with plans to locate two new sports fields on land once occupied by some agricultural landmarks. In the last several months, the college has acquired the former Boyle County Stockyards and Farmers Tobacco Warehouse No. 1 sites. Michael Strysick, Centre’s director of communications, said plans include a multipurpose field that could serve as a playing surface for sports, including field hockey and lacrosse, on the corner of Dillehay and Hope streets.
