Multiple Teams · UPDATE: Athletic Project Gets New Lines, Markings, And Numbers Added To Track


LAKEVILLE, IN. – The current athletic project continues to see positive strides on the campus of LaVille Jr-Sr High School.  LaVille Athletics recently found the striping crew on the track putting the final touches on track lines, markings, and numbering the lanes.

 

 

TRACK AND FOOTBALL FIELD

“Upon completion, our track and football area will be among the finest in our area,” explained the UNUSC superintendent.  “The football field sports a beautiful Kentucky Bluegrass plus a new scoreboard, time clocks and goal posts.  We were able to win the sectional final on Lancer field this past fall, and we plan to continue this for many years to come.

“The track sports a new surface and brand new field event areas.” continued Mawhorter.  “This includes a pole vault pit and a two way long jump area.  We feel there will be opportunities to host the Lancer Relays, Unified Track, and hopefully IHSAA tournament events.”

 

The football field is also receiving much-needed improvements.

“Sections of sod have been replaced at the center of the field as well as along both sidelines,” said Hostrawser.  “Drainage has been improved on the sidelines as well.  The field has been aerated and over seeded earlier this spring.  We are still experiencing drainage issues on the home sideline that we will look to address.”

 Final touches will help finish the project in the coming days.
“A final layer of crushed rubber has been applied,” continued Hostrawser.  “The long jump runway needs to be finished yet – but everything else is complete.  Next up will be the striping and that should take place in the next couple of weeks.  We are also working on reconfiguring the shot put / discus areas as their current locations are needing to be moved due to space limitations.  We are sorting through options for those areas now with the contractors and architects.  We have a new set of hurdles and a new pole vault pit that are in and ready to be put to use.”
The striping crew came from Ohio and travels throughout the United States.
Last year, the put over a million over the road miles and went from the west coast to the east coast in a matter of four days!
