Trine dedicates soccer field

May 08, 2013

ANGOLA, Ind. – Trine University's campus community, members of the Board of Trustees and friends showed their appreciation and support Friday, May 3, when Trine dedicated its soccer field to Dr. R. Wyatt "Joe" and Judy Weaver.

The soccer field was dedicated to Dr. Weaver, a Trine trustee since 2004, and his wife, Judy, for their time and contributions that have helped propel Trine University. The Weavers have supported Trine in many ways, and aiding student-athletes is one of their favorite causes. For 22 years, Dr. Weaver, an Angola physician and member of Parkview Physicians Group, has donated his medical services to Thunder student-athletes, putting in many long hours at sporting contests and events.

"We are grateful to Joe and Judy for their continual support of Trine University and especially Trine athletics," said Earl D. Brooks II, Ph.D., Trine president. "Not only has Joe shared his medical expertise, but he and Judy have helped with fundraisers for the athletic department as well as student scholarships."

A plaque installed at newly named Weaver Field reads:

"Trine University honors Dr. R. Wyatt Weaver, a trustee, and his wife, Judy, for their time and dedication contributing to the success of Trine University. This field is dedicated for use by current and future student-athletes."

Members of Trine's men's and women's soccer teams presented the Weavers with a signed soccer ball and framed jersey during the dedication.

Legendary Indiana Hoosiers former men's soccer coach Jerry Yeagley was also in attendance to support the Weavers.
