Pioneer Athletics announced Monday that Great Lakes Loons have been selected as a winner of the 2018 Fields of Excellence Award. The Loons will receive a certificate of recognition as well as a Fields of Excellence banner that they plan to display at the ballpark.
“It’s a great honor to be recognized by Pioneer Athletics,” head groundskeeper Kelly Rensel said. “The crew here works tirelessly to make the playing surface top-notch and they deserve all the credit for this. Their hard work has paid off and will continue to do so”
Clubs, colleges, universities and high schools from all over the country submitted entries describing their institution’s detailed athletic field maintenance program. A rigorous judging process yielded 91 winners from the large pool of applicants. Two athletic fields were randomly selected as Scholarship Winners.
