Citrin Field

Wesleyan formally dedicated its newest synthetic turf field to the south of the Freeman Athletic Center inside Andersen Track Sat., Nov. 22, 2014, naming it Citrin Field, in honor of the Citrin family.  Jim Citrin P'12, P'14 spoke on behalf of the Citrin family with President Michael Roth and Athletics Director Mike Whalen '83 in attendance.  Teddy Citrin '12 was a high-scoring, four-year letterman in men's lacrosse, racking up 76 goals and 13 assists for 89 scoring points while helping the Cardinals post a record of 42-23 from 2009-12.  Oliver Citrin '14 was a outstanding fan and men's lacrosse team photographer during his Wesleyan years.

Jim, Teddy and Oliver all joined Wesleyan head men's lacrosse coach John Raba and members of the 2015 team during the festivities.  Citrin Field, opened for use during the fall of 2013, is a lighted field used for football, men's and women's soccer, and men's lacrosse activity, situated inside Andersen Track.  It is Wesleyan's second artificial surface field, joining Smith Field, which opened in 2006.  Citrin Field features a Momentum 51 field turf surface from Shaw Sports Turf.
