Fields of Dreams

Renovation plan for NHS athletic facilities taking shape NAUGATUCK — The scene at Naugatuck High School last Monday was splendid.

Those fields and that track the Greyhounds use are by no means the best around. But if this scene is fast forwarded to just three years down the road, everything — without exaggeration — will be perfect. That’s because in spring 2015, the Naugatuck athletic complex will finally be totally complete, according to the latest timeline of athletic director Tom Pompei.
