Penn State softball field to be named for Lower Dauphin grad who died of cancer

Posted

Penn State Harrisburg is dedicating the Courtney Pollock Memorial Field and Softball Complex at 2:30 p.m. April 12 at the softball field on Olmsted Drive on campus.

The event will honor the memory of Penn State Harrisburg alumna Courtney Pollock, who died in June 2013 from cancer.

In 1999, Pollock graduated from Lower Dauphin High School, where she played softball and field hockey and actively volunteered in the community. She also has a turf field named for her at the LD sports complex.

She graduated from Penn State Harrisburg in 2003 with a bachelor of science degree in elementary education and went on to teach and coach in the Lower Dauphin and Central Dauphin school districts.

Pollock was the daughter of Douglas W. Pollock, a Penn State alumnus and collegiate athlete. The Douglas W. Pollock Foundation made a $750,000 donation to support the college’s athletics and the naming of the field and softball complex.

The foundation has supported Penn State Harrisburg since 2014.  They have endowed the Courtney Pollock Memorial Trustee Scholarship, a need-based scholarship benefiting students in the elementary education program.

Following the ceremony, the Penn State Harrisburg women’s softball team will take on Penn State Abington at 3 p.m.
