Corvallis Hurling: Benton Brigade brings new life to old sport

If you visit Willamette Park on a Saturday morning, you might come across a group playing with a ball and some sticks on the big field at the end of the parking lot. If you’re like some of the passersby I heard comment as they were biking past the field, you probably think it’s field hockey. Those people might be surprised to know it’s actually the Benton Brigade Hurling Club playing one of the world’s oldest field sports, hurling.
