Charlotte E. Smith Field

Re-dedicated to Dr. Charlotte E. Smith on October 25, 2008, this lighted, artificial turf field is home to the field hockey and lacrosse teams.

Pegged as one of the most scenic competition sites in the PSAC, Charlotte E. Smith Field lays between stunning, picturesque hillside of carved rocks.

Dr. Charlotte E. Smith served Lock Haven State (Teachers) College for 29 years (1944-1973) as Professor in the Department Health and Physical Education.

At a time when there were few athletics opportunities for women, Charlotte Smith coached basketball (1944-67; 89-33) and initiated and coached varsity teams in field hockey (1945-72; 152-36-19) and lacrosse (1970-73; 16-1). Upon her retirement in 1973, Lock Haven State College recognized Dr. Smith’s extraordinary service by naming a field in her honor.
