Sweeney Field Expanded and Blessed
The home of Hawk Athletic teams for more than 80 years, Finnesey Field was renamed Sweeney Field and blessed at this year’s Hawktoberfest. Featuring expanded seating for 3,000, the completed facility will include a full service press box, enhanced sound system, new scoreboard, a stone façade and two dramatic Hawk statues. The field was renamed in recognition of the contributions of University Trustee Sean S. Sweeney M.B.A. ’94, the lead benefactor of the project. A formal dedication will be held on April 5.
