Boonsboro High School's track-and-field complex will be renamed Scott Field in honor of longtime coach Dwight Scott.
The Washington County Board of Education voted unanimously to approve the naming during Tuesday's board meeting at the central office off Commonwealth Avenue.
Scott could not be reached for comment Tuesday.
A physical education teacher and coach, Scott worked for the school system from 1959 to 1996. During his career, he coached track and field, football and cross country.
He continued to serve as a volunteer coach for the Boonsboro Warriors' track-and-field team until he had to take a break in April when he had heart surgery.
Scott has supported various fundraising efforts to improve the high school's athletic facilities.
