Boys’ freshmen football teams relocated to a new field this year for practices and games
After moving from the old cemetery lot to just outside of Knoch Park, the players and coaches adjusted to the new setting.
“It’s a good field,” said freshman football player Tyler Vizza. “It [may not] be as good as the turf, but it’s still a quality football field.”
“ Before this change took place, Central used the cemetery lot next to the tennis courts.
Central changed its field location after being forced to relocate to the Knoch Park location. Because this property is owned by the city of Naperville, the field is also used for park district activities.
Vizza thinks the fields are a good purchase.
“I think it was a good spend,” Vizza said, “now we have two really great fields.”
“[The upperclassmen] have really been helping me out,” Goldner said. “[They’re] really welcoming and help me keep my head up.”
The advice is just one example of leadership displayed by the upperclassmen.
“[Upperclasssmen] were really good role models doing everything how we should, always running practice right,” Chen said.
The girls finished second St. Charles East Mary Carlson Invitational girls’ tennis after losing a tie breaker and prepare to play Wheaton North today.
