The alma mater of the late Yeardley Love is set to dedicate a new turf field that will bear the name of the former University of Virginia lacrosse player.
Notre Dame Prep in Towson will dedicate Yeardley Love Field in a ceremony set to take place Sunday afternoon. The field's construction cost $1.2 million, money that was raised through donations directly to the school as well as to the One Love Foundation, which was started by Love's family after her death. The field will be used by the school's field hockey, lacrosse, and soccer teams.
Love, a Cockeysville native and 2006 graduate of Notre Dame Prep, was found dead in her off-campus apartment in May 2010. Love's ex-boyfriend, George Huguely V of Chevy Chase, was convicted of second-degree murder and grand larceny earlier this year. He was recently sentenced to 23 years in prison.
Sunday's ceremony is set to begin at 5 p.m.
