QND announces athletic field upgrades

Quincy Notre Dame athletic announced that construction will begin the first week of May on a new synthetic surface football and soccer field.

The announcement was made Wednesday morning for what will be known as Advance Physical Therapy Field. The new field is scheduled to open in August.

The Quincy-based physical therapy company retains naming rights for the field for a decade.

"This field will touch each student here at QND whether it is through physical education classes, athletic events, or used by the QND Band," QND principal Mark McDowell said. "I work closely with the QND Foundation to manage and grow the resources in support of the school. We assess the needs of Quincy Notre Dame and develop ways in which these needs can be addressed by advancing the institution. Collectively, our goal is to ensure that our students and families can remain confident in our ability to provide a top quality Catholic education."
