Farmers Field opens
YSU junior Cara Armstrong advances the ball at the opening soccer game at the new Farmers National Bank Field on Aug. 30. Farmers donated $500,000 to YSU to help construct the field located on the corner of the Madison Avenue Expressway service road and Fifth Avenue, across from Stambaugh Stadium. The soccer facility is part of a complex that also includes a new field for the women’s softball team, now nearing completion. The Toledo game was the first of eight home contests for the Penguins this year. The Rockets won the opening contest, 1-0.
