There are some changes coming to Butterfield Stadium, the home of the Ithaca Bombers.
It was announced Tuesday that 1981 graduate Monica Bertino Wooden will fund the installation of new lighting and a turf field.
The playing surface will be named Bertino Field at Butterfield Stadium in recognition of her donation of $3 million for the project.
Wooden played softball and basketball as a student-athlete, earning her bachelor’s degree in physical education. Her brother John Bertino ’80 played on both the 1979 football and 1980 baseball teams that won national championships.
The project is planned to begin in the spring of 2023, with completion prior to the start of the fall semester and the first home football game in the fall.
