While most of us dread the frigid temps, Facilities Director Albert DeMarmels is feeling thankful for the recent cold snap. The previously soggy ground is now dry and firm, which means the athletic field work is moving full speed ahead.
Construction at Liberty High School continues as part of the district’s field improvement project, approved by district voters last fall that will replace two drain lines and add perimeter draining around the school’s baseball, soccer and softball fields.
To date, drain lines and catch basins have been installed and the new soiled has been tested for sufficient compaction. The perimeter draining is approximately 75 percent complete.
Mr. DeMarmels is hopeful that the field will be open in time for our spring athletes to play a few games on their home field.
