Repairs nearly finished at Dryden football field

Repairs nearly finished at Dryden football field

For a high school athlete, there might not be a better feeling than playing in front of your home fans.

But due to pipe and infrastructure problems found under the football field at Dryden High School last spring, the district was forced to make repairs.

Superintendent Sandy Sherwood says the problems were causing ruts in the field, making knee and ankle injuries a possibility for athletes.

They got the work done by late July, but heavy rains in August wiped out two rounds of grass seeding.

“The third seeding is the one that has now taken,” Sherwood said.

However, the work wasn’t done in time for football season.

“We did have to move our first football game, and we only have four home football games, so that was a huge disappointment,” Sherwood said. “But it’s doing great, and we’re pretty confident we’re going to be out there for our next game.”

That next home game is scheduled for September 27th.
