Field hockey should return to action at home Sunday.

Geasey Field, which underwent construction during the summer, is equipped with new turf and a coat of paint.

Construction on Geasey Field has been behind schedule for three weeks now, but Karen Auerbach, associate director of athletic communications, said it’s nearing completion and will be ready some time next week.

The new turf is down and set. All that remains are drawing the lines used for field hockey, lacrosse, softball, football and soccer.

Geasey Field has been shut down for the better part of the summer as crews took their time to make sure the renovations were up to par, Auerbach said.

The field hockey team was forced to play its home games at Drexel’s Buckley Field, and the lacrosse team has been practicing at the Edberg-Olson Hall Football Complex.
