TRACK AND SOCCER BOWL UPGRADES
Track: Delta Construction and Field Turf have been working long hours to reach the goal of having the project completed. Although the entire project will not be completed until November, the new track and field surfaces will be ready to be used by the fall term. This was a huge hurdle for all the construction crews to complete such a large project in a very short amount of time. Upgrades made to the new outdoor area are a new synthetic field, long jump spaces, shot put areas, and concrete sidewalks for easy access. The new asphalt track will need to be covered with a two-tone rubber coating that is expected to last for over 10 years. The new score board that is to be installed mid October will be completely digital and will allow track officials to display results for all lanes at one time. With the Titan name displayed on the top, other proud sponsors will be able to display their information on the other three panels that surround the scoreboard. Contact Mark Richardson, (541) 463-3456.

Soccer Bowl: This field is an exciting addition for the physical education and sports programs. The new design allows for better access and outdoor spectator seating. In the past, this area was often wet and standing water was always an issue. With the newly engineered draining system and gravel parking, the water will now drain into an underground storm-drain system keeping the area dry and useable year round. An access road has been added to the southeast corner of the field so those with limited physical ability will be able to park next to the field making their time more enjoyable. After the field is completed, the old baseball scoreboard will be replaced with a new, larger, double-sided digital scoreboard that is used for the new soccer and baseball fields. Surrounding the new scoreboards reaching twenty feet high will be a protective netting system allowing both fields to be used at the same time and provides protection from flying balls on both playing fields.
