APPLE SPRINGS — The 51-7 win over Trinity School of Texas was the perfect way to christen the newly refurbished football field here.
Over the summer, Nelson Davis Stadium at ASISD was made ADA-accessible with new bleachers and sidewalks.
Greg Campbell, director of Operations for the district, said the bleachers and press box were more than 30 years old and were in bad shape, so the school board voted to upgrade them and bring them into compliance.
“We installed new bleachers and a press box on the home side and these bleachers are ADA-compliant and wheelchair accessible,” he said. “We installed new sidewalks from the entrance to the home bleachers and to the visitor bleachers as well. We also installed sidewalks to the concession stand and restrooms.
“We also built a new field house on the south end of the football field for our high school and junior high teams,” he said. “Our old field house will now be used for the visiting teams and officials at our home games.”
This week, there is a junior school game at 5 p.m. Thursday against Conroe Northside and the high school will play at 7 p.m. Friday against High Island, and Campbell said everyone is welcome to enjoy the new facilities and the games.
