The new athletic field at Beacon High School was inaugurated last month when the varsity girls’ soccer team hosted Pelham. (The bleachers hadn’t been installed so spectators were asked to bring chairs.) The site looked far different in June. The artificial-turf field, which also has lights, accounted for $1.6 million of a $9.7 million capital improvement project approved by voters in 2017 and 2018. It will be used by the soccer, football and lacrosse teams.
