WGAL NEWS 8’S KATELYN SMITH
EXPLAINS. KATELYN: SPOOKY NOOK WAS BUILT
WITH THIS TEAM IN MIND. >> THEY WERE A PART OF US FROM
THE GROUND UP, SO WE REALLY
CATERED TO THEIR NEEDS. KATELYN: BUT NOW IT MAY NO
LONGER BE WORKING OUT. >> I THINK IT WILL ALWAYS HAVE A
SPECIAL PLACE IN OUR HEART. RIGHT, I THINK WE’LL ALWAYS BE
HOME OF HOCKEY. KATELYN: BUT PERHAPS NOT USA
FIELD HOCKEY. A PETITION TO REVIEW THE MEN’S
AND WOMEN’S MISSION TO SUCCEED
INTERNATIONALLY DESCRIBES THE
FOOD AT SPOOKY NOOK AS ROTTEN,
UNDERCOOKED, AND LOW QUALITY. WE VISITED AROUND LUNCHTIME AND
FOUND THE COACH AND SEVERAL
PLAYERS IN THE FOOD COURT. THEY HAD NO COMMENT. THE PETITION ALSO SAYS T
PITCH, OR FIELD HERE, IS UNSAFE. SPOOKY NOOK SAYS A NEW ONE IS IN
THE WORKS. >> LOOKING AT IT, IT LOOKS FINE,
BUT IT’S THE MESH WATER-CATCHING
SUBSTANCE UNDERNEATH THIS TURF
LAYER THAT NEEDS REPLACED. KATELYN: IS IT UNSAFE? >> NO. KATELYN: WE DID REACH OUT TO THE
EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR OF USA FIELD
HOCKEY. HE BASICALLY TOLD US HE HAD NO
COMMENT, BUT DID TELL US AT
LEAST FOR 2020, THE WOMEN’S TEAM
WILL STILL BE PRACTICING HERE,
BUT NO GAMES ARE SCHEDULED TO BE
PLAYED HERE. >> WE’RE JUST TRYING TO MAKE
SURE IT MAKES SENSE FOR BOTH
PARTIES, AND IF THE ANSWER IS
YES, THEN WE’LL START FILLING
OUT THE SCHEDU
