Public Comment Period Open for Naming of Two Athletic Facilities
The Guilford County Board of Education approved opening a 30-day period of public comment on the naming of the Western High baseball field and the Northwest High soccer field.
Guilford County Schools received a nomination from the community to name the Northwest High soccer field the “Coach Bob Yow Soccer Field.” The name honors longtime Northwest High coach Bob Yow, who was the first coach and founder of the school’s soccer program. In addition, he led the girls’ basketball team for 24 years, accumulating an overall record of 370-241. He also taught math and served in several leadership positions during his tenure at Northwest. Yow passed away in June of 2012.
The district also received a nomination from the community to name the baseball field at Western High the “Jaiden Britt Memorial Field.” Jaiden Britt was the young son of Western High alumnus Clay Britt; Jaiden was tragically killed in a local boating accident.
