District to dedicate field and new solar-powered scoreboard

Marcellus Central School District will dedicate the Mary Chappell Field at 5 p.m. Friday, Sept. 5, before the junior varsity girls soccer game.
The former “pit field” between K.C. Heffernan Elementary and C.S. Driver Middle schools hosts a number of soccer and lacrosse games. Other sports teams practice there, as well.
Mary Chappell is a retired Marcellus physical education teacher and alumna of the Marcellus Central Schools, as well as a former long-time coach.
“She was instrumental in creating one of the first girls' sports programs in the county,” said KCH third-grade teacher Eileen Driscoll, a 1985 Marcellus graduate who played for Coach Chappell while a student here. “Mary Chappell brought out a lot of hard work, determination and success in her athletes. She was tough, but fair. She was very vocal on the sidelines. Always yelling directions, never complaints to refs or players. Since her time at Marcellus, girls soccer and volleyball are forces to be reckoned with.”
The coach led her soccer and volleyball teams to numerous championship titles.
Thanks to the generous donations of many alumni, residents, youth organizations and friends, a solar-powered scoreboard emblazoned with the field’s new name was purchased and installed in August. Through the collaborative efforts of dedicated alumni, Superintendent of Schools Dr. Craig Tice, district Building and Grounds Director Keith Watkins, Board of Education President Ryan Riefler and the entire school board, the seed of a great idea sprouted into a reality in time for the new school year.  

The public is invited to attend the field dedication at 5 p.m. Sept. 5.
