• Kacur Field Dedicated

    In a boys’ soccer halftime ceremony at Homecoming 2012, the refurbished Kacur Field was officially dedicated in honor of beloved former teacher and soccer coach Jeff Kacur. Leadership donor Joe McGrath ’81 and his wife, Christine, used the naming opportunity that came with their $620,000 gift to honor Kacur’s 32 years of service at Newark Academy.

    Rained-out practices and games called because of darkness are a thing of the past for Minuteman athletics, thanks to NA’s first artificial turfed and lighted sports field. Replacing the former varsity soccer pitch, Kacur Field is home to the soccer teams as well as early-season lacrosse practices and an occasional foray by NA’s Ultimate Frisbee Club. Gifts and pledges to Kacur Field covered the entire cost of the $2 million renovation
