UVM to Dedicate New Artificial Turf Field Sunday

	BURLINGTON, Vt. - The University of Vermont will formally dedicate its new
artificial turf athletic field in a ceremony at the Archie Post Athletic
Complex at 11:40 a.m. Sunday, October 9, prior to the field hockey game against
the University of Maine.
	The field will be known as the Moulton Winder Field in honor of Reynolds E.
"Rey" Moulton, Jr. and Betsy Winder of Manchester, Massachusetts, whose $1
million gift to Vermont athletics financed a major portion of the construction.
Winder is the mother of UVM sophomore and field hockey team member Stirling
Winder and was herself a standout in field hockey during her student years at
Lehigh University.
	"When Stirling decided to go to UVM, we heard about the plans for a new
artificial turf field and decided we wanted to help," Moulton said. Betsy
Winder said she was impressed by Vermont when her daughter was looking at
colleges but surprised that UVM did not have a better home field for field
hockey as compared with other schools in the league. "You have to have a proper
facility if you want to attract and retain the best student athletes," she
said.
	The new field will be the home for men's and women's lacrosse as well as field
hockey. Construction began in the spring of 2004, and the field was ready for
play at the opening of the current academic year.
	Funding for the $2.6 million project is being provided entirely through private
donors to the university's ongoing comprehensive campaign. Donors include
former UVM student-athletes and other alumni as well as parents and friends of
UVM athletics.
	Future planned improvements to the Archie Post Athletic Complex include
construction of a stadium for soccer with permanent seating for 4,000
spectators, a track-and-field complex, and space for concessions, picnicking,
and restrooms.
	Joining Moulton and Winder at the dedication and ribbon cutting will be
governor Jim Douglas, UVM president Daniel Mark Fogel and Rachel Kahn-Fogel,
trustees chair Carl Lisman '67, athletics director Robert Corran, and members
of the varsity lacrosse and field hockey teams.
