Work on South Lakes High School Track Now Expected to Continue Into September

Construction work to improve the track and other features around the stadium at South Lakes High School is now expected to continue into September, meaning some sports activity will be affected.

“We are moving scrimmages for football,” said Andrew Duggan, the school’s assistant director of student activities. “There may be an impact for a couple of field hockey games and lower-level football.”

The SLHS field hockey teams have home games scheduled for Aug. 30. The varsity football team has a home scrimmage slated for Aug. 18, while the JV and freshman teams have two scrimmages in late August, as well as home games on Sept. 7.

The South Lakes High School varsity football team starts its season with three consecutive road games. It won’t play at home until Friday, Sept. 15, when it hosts Dominion.

Duggan said additional information about the progress of the project will be provided on the South Lakes Athletics website, as well as on its Twitter account.

The work was originally scheduled to be completed before the start of the coming school year. However, Duggan said, the wait will be worth it.

“While the project is behind schedule, we are looking forward to the upgrade our facility is getting,” Duggan said.
