1934

The current stadium was built in the 1930s. The track hasn’t been resurfaced since the mid-1980s, and the field hasn’t been recrowned in over 25 years. The following are issues with the current field at the old high school:

• No locker rooms and showers
• Field is not regulation (too short)
• Distance from the high school – both teams currently have to be bussed
• No restrooms
• Can’t hold playoff games
• Track is unsafe
• Limited seating for home and visitor
• Field grade is inadequate
• Concrete walls deteriorating
• Goal posts need to be replaced
• Visitor bleachers not up to code (unsafe)
• Not ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) accessible
• Lack of parking
• Band travels with instruments to home competition
• Fencing inadequate for field control and posts lift out (unsafe)
• Field maintenance equipment has to be transported to field
• Kicks retrieved by climbing a fence into neighbors yard
• Lights require upgrading
• Teams/officials have no shelter
• Powerlines should be buried
• No ticket booths to control cash flow
• Streets have to be closed
• No water in concessions for clean up
