BLACKSVILLE -

When a few of our local high school football teams step onto the field this fall they will be stepping onto a brand new field. Clay-Battelle is one of them.

The Cee Bees said rain has slowed construction, but the project is on schedule to be open for this season.

The turf is down, and the stands are going up.

The stadium will hold more than 2,000 fans and will feature a brand new press box.

With an asphalt track around the around the field it will be a multi-sport facility.

"There is a lot of community pride here, lots of backing for athletics, lots of backing for academics," said Clay-Battelle Principal David Cottrell "It opens that option for all of those groups now. Its as much a community project as it is a school project."
