September 2009 -

Due to some of the heavy rain storms over summer, the hill that the bleachers at Shoemaker field sits on has started to erode away.  We have contracted with a company to sure up the hill directly behind the bleachers and to create a water drainage swail to channel rain water to the drainage ditch.  This work is scheduled to take place week of September 14, 2009 and is to be completed in time for Homecoming events..
