Congratulations!  Message from Athletic Director, Matt Colvin:  "Ridgewood High School's athletic field was just named a Field of Excellence winner by Pioneer Athletics!  On behalf of the Athletic Department and our athletes, I want to thank some people who have played a pivotal role in us receiving this honor.  First, our maintenance crew.  Thank you for your work painting the field.  These men spend a lot of time making sure everything is just right.  Secondly, I would like to thank Front and Center Turf.  Mike Dover and his crew have been amazing to work with.  Their knowledge and attention to detail is second to none.  Thank you for the work you have done getting our field in the condition it is in. Lastly, I want to thank our grounds and transportation director, Doug Patterson, our superintendent, Mike Masloski, and our Board of Education for listening and being willing to assist in making our facilities some of the best around.  We strive each day to make available to our student athletes the very best so they can be proud and have every opportunity to succeed.  We will be receiving a banner that will be displayed in the stadium.  Thank you and Go Generals!
