SPRING LAKE — It started as a quick idea between friends last fall. Spring Lake High School rising junior Kreegan Deverney had a big patch of knee-high grass in his family’s backyard – plenty big for a wiffle ball field.

He recruited a couple buddies to help clear the space once school moved online, and a couple weeks later, COVID Field was born.
