Tim--was that burning of the stands associated with one of the classic Lowell senior pranks of the past? I remember stories about the large tree (cypress, redwood??) that mysteriously grew out of the 50-yard line on the Lowell field one night, probably in the 1970s/80s. Another one involved taping off the entry doors and creating a goldfish pond in one of the exterior courtyards. Lowell students have always been ingenious in their senior pranks, but several of those efforts have gone awry over the years.
