Yesterday evening the Beech Grove community celebrated with athletes, coaches, marching band members, the BGCS school board, and BGCS administration in breaking ground for the installation of the new turf field and other facility enhancements. These improvements would not have been possible without the community’s support from our recent referendum vote. The Beech Grove Athletic Department and its student-athletes are endlessly grateful for that support and the impact it will have for years to come on our athletics and marching band programs.
The turf field should be ready to debut on September 17th. Our first competitions will be played on the field that following week. Some changes coming from the installation will mean all home soccer games will now be played at TCU stadium. Other improvements include the installation of a new turf baseball field. Home games will now be played on campus. The softball field will see new turf installed as well. Finally, outdoor concessions and restroom facilities will be constructed to service fans along with improved parking and a marching band practice space. Besides the needed facility enhancements, the installation of turf will require less maintenance and safer conditions for our student-athletes.
We can’t wait to show off these new enhancements to students, parents, and community members this September and we’ll be sure to keep everyone posted on the construction process with regular updates.
Below are some pictures from yesterday’s groundbreaking.
