Assemblywoman Nily Rozic Attends Queens College Track and Soccer Pitch Ribbon Cutting
Queens, NY – Assemblywoman Nily Rozic (D, WF-Fresh Meadows) attended a ceremony to mark the completion of the college’s track and soccer field (pitch) renovation project. The $9.8 million project began in January 2021, with city and state funding. Rozic secured a New York State grant for $500,000 for the track renovation. She later joined Queens College President Frank Wu and Queens Borough President Donovan Richards for an inaugural lap around the track.
Queens College’s NCAA Division II level athletes use the soccer field for games, conditioning, and sport-specific training and for the college’s intramural events and physical education classes. New York City public and Catholic diocese school championships and Special Olympics sporting events are hosted on the field. Community groups use the field for soccer, track and field, and field day events. The track & field will serve Queens College, Townsend Harris High School, John Bowne High School students, and be available to community members at-large.
