Goodbye Track!

Some students hate it, other students love it, but everyone knows the track-the 7 lane, heavily cracked, shin-splint inducing, asphalt track. No matter what part of the spectrum your feelings for the track fall under, it’s time for all students to tell it goodbye.

The track and stadium are set to be completely demolished and rebuilt by May of 2019. The school and boosters plan to lay down a brand 8 lane asphalt track and eventually upgrade to a rubber track in the next few years. In addition, the field lights, the bleachers on both sides of the stadium, and the press box all are on track to be completely rebuilt and renovated.

Most students and faculty are very excited for these upcoming renovations.

“I’m excited for the new track because it will improve the performance of all athletes,” senior Daniel Harrell said.
