Staples Girls Teams Boosters Aim to ‘Tame the Hill’

Westport’s girl athletes have joined forces on the Tame the Hill Campaign, a $165,000 private fundraiser to install safer access to Ginny Parker Field used for Staples High School field hockey and lacrosse. Image

Organizers say each year about 500 Westport girls ages 7 through 18, as well as visiting teams use the field.

To date, 45 percent of the funds have been raised, and boosters are in their final push, so that a local construction company can begin the project in June and have it completed by August, campaign organizers say.

The architectural design by Franzen and Associates and engineering plans by Redniss and Mead already have been approved by the Planning and Zoning Commission.
