Many students at La Jolla High school have been aware of the field reconstruction since it was proposed, and now that the construction is well underway Mr. Hawthorne has agreed to update the student body on the progress of the project.

There are still many decisions to be made about the outcome of the field. Mr. Hawthorne announced that while the field is under construction, the teams that normally practice on the field would find alternative sites to practice and compete, provided through the efforts of our athletic director, coach Conway.

There is a possibility that some field hockey games will still be played home at Muirlands as normal, but sports like soccer and football may not be so fortunate to play that close to home.

One thing that is being constructed is a tennis pavilion that is going to be put next to the current tennis courts with storage and office space as well as outdoor seating covered by an awning. Other alterations to the field include replacing the press box, remaking both the turf and field, repainting the home bleachers, installing permanent away bleachers, a new weight room, and rebuilding coaches’ offices. Also, a new entrance by the archway near the 500 building will be turned into a functioning funneling point into the stadium.

Overall, it’s going to be a challenge. However, we can use it as motivation and give us the opportunity to rally together, believing that we can win no matter where we play. The whole process is estimated to be completed in a total of 18 months beginning to end.
