| Moreau Catholic breaks ground
on new athletics, activities center
Moreau Catholic High School in Hayward begins the transformation of its "largest classroom" with the groundbreaking ceremony of its new Athletics and Student Activities Complex at 9:30 a.m. Feb. 8.
To mark the occasion, the school will gather players and coaches of its original teams, as well as its Hall of Fame inductees, on its field to honor their contribution to Moreau Catholic's athletic legacy. As an important milestone in the school's $5 million Campaign for Champions, the capital campaign to support the construction of the new facilities, other special guests at the ceremony will include Hayward and East Bay civic leaders, members of the Diocese of Oakland, and prominent campaign donors, including the Fremont Bank Foundation and the Moreau Catholic Booster Club.
Moreau Catholic will name the football field the "Al Vermeil Field" after the legendary Moreau and professional football coach.
"This top-of-the-line, all-weather turf field is a fitting tribute to his accomplishments and contributions to the Moreau Catholic community in perpetuity," said Moreau Catholic President Terry Lee.
The field, along with the school's entire new state-of-the-art athletic facilities, is slated to be unveiled in fall 2014. The complex will include an eight-lane track, new bleachers and press box, energy-efficient lights, scoreboard, sound system, entryway and landscaping. It will also serve as a community resource as part of the school's tradition of providing facilities to local organizations.
