DETAILS:
Saturday marks the official opening of the new East High School athletic complex and turf field. This new complex, comparable to any high school or collegiate facility in the region, is one of many new programs being completed under Phase I of the Facilities
Modernization Plan.

The $2 million dollar project — consisting of new field turf, fencing, goal posts, and a six-lane track that includes areas for shot put, discus, and steeplechase events— broke ground five months ago. In addition to sporting events, the complex will serve Physical Education classes and the city-wide marching band with plans to host extensive community events as well.

Superintendent Bolgen Vargas, Ed.D., will hold a brief ceremony with elected officials to inaugurate the field before the first game to be played there. The new DRUMLine will perform prior to the game, which begins at 2:00 p.m. against Edison.
