Changes are taking place on “The Hill”at Campbell County High School.  So when you come through the gates on August 24 for the Cougars home football opener with Crockett, you ‘ll be wowed.

It’s out with the old lights (on the field) and in with the new (on the pole directly above)

Imagine traveling on I-75 at 65-miles per hour in a 43-year old car.  Not sure I want to imagine.  The 43-year old lights, the originals, that have hovered over Pat Kerr Field since 1975 have all come down.  According to Robbie Heatherly, the person who oversees maintenance out of the Central Office, the new lights are safer and more efficient.

The crane prepares to lift out the last of the old lights.

Cougar Head Football Coach Justin Price says, “The new lights will enhance an already great atmosphere on “The Hill.”  We will continue to identify areas to upgrade our facility.”  CLICK HERE to see more photos.

Resurfacing preparation began last week for what will be the third track surface in the history of Campbell High.

Heatherly explains that the football scoreboard had to be taken down in order to construct the new track.

Price adds that final changes are in the works for a new scoreboard with hopes to have a final rendering soon.  The eighth year head coach will soon have a sketch of the new scoreboard to share with us.  (WLAF NEWS PUBLISHED – 06/22/2018-6AM)
