MARQUETTE, Mich.—Memories of Hedgcock Fieldhouse will be shared during an informal roundtable discussion hosted by Craig Remsburg and Tom Peters at the Beaumier Upper Peninsula Heritage Center at Northern Michigan University. The event begins at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 6, in 105 Cohodas Hall. It is free and open to the public.
Local sportswriters, athletes and coaches will share stories and memories associated with one of the most revered U.P. sports venues.
Named after longtime NMU basketball coach and physical education department head Charles B. Hedgcock, the fieldhouse was the site of hundreds of NMU competitions in men’s and women’s basketball, volleyball, tennis, wrestling and track. It also was the site of high school regional basketball tournaments.
The roundtable is held in conjunction with the Beaumier Center’s U.P. high school sports exhibit and February U.P. Heritage Month activities, which are funded in part by grants from the National Endowment for the Arts and the Michigan Council for Arts and Cultural Affairs.
