Softball/Baseball fields with the start of the concession building
July 8: The Hellas team presented their update at the monthly school board meeting. They reported that tentatively, the football field should be ready for the first home game. Construction will continue throughout the fall on the baseball/softball areas. At this time, barring weather challenges, the project will be completed around the first part of December. There were clarifications about what the "E-Layer" is for the football field - essentially a shock pad which reduces concussions and increases the life of the artificial turf. More information is here.
