DERRY — The Pinkerton Academy “oval” on the lower area of campus received a new look last month with entirely new sod. The sod arrived on a truck, all rolled up neatly into bundles before being spread by workers onto the field.
The work at the oval was paid for by an anonymous donor, Pinkerton officials reported. There was no cost to the school or taxpayers.
The cost of the new sod was about $20,000, according to school officials.
Pinkerton football and lacrosse teams actively use this lower campus field.
