School is back in session, and the first football games are just around the corner. During the last several months, Logan County’s three high school fields have been receiving a major upgrade, and each school will be playing its first home game on a brand-new turf field.
Logan County Board of Education President Jim Frye says the project will not only benefit the schools’ football programs but will have a positive impact on the entire county.
“We are excited at how the turf can open new opportunities for students’ physical activities as well as helping to improve our athletic programs. The beauty of the turf fields reflects each schools’ pride and should help put our stadiums among the best in the state.”
Chapmanville Regional and Man will both open the 2015 football season at home on Friday, August 28. Prior to the Chapmanville Regional game, there will be a brief dedication ceremony for the new field. A ceremony dedicating the Man field will take place the same night during halftime of the Man and Logan game. The Board of Education will have a dedication for the Logan field during its first home game on Friday, September 18.
Phyllis Doty, Superintendent of Logan County Schools, says making the field project a reality took a lot of effort from the BOE.
“It has taken years of dedication and collaboration to make this project happen. I am thankful we have progressive board members who recognize how a project like this will positively affect our county.”
