EYAA to Dedicate a Field to Sue Russell

At their February 16th meeting, the Epping School Board reconsidered naming the Epping Middle School softball field for Sue Russell after learning that the Epping Youth Athletic Association plans to dedicate a field at Mary Folsom Blair Park instead. Sue, a beloved longtime Epping coach and volunteer, died In early December.  After input and a proposal from the community, the Board had voted unanimously to name the Middle School softball field for Sue Russell, to commemorate her love for the sport and her impact on the Epping community.

However, since then they’ve learned of the EYAA plans to dedicate a field in her memory at Mary Folsom Blair Park.  There was some feeling that would be more appropriate as the games she coached were played on a field at the Park.
