DELMAR – On Wednesday, April 26, the Bethlehem Central School District officially broke ground on a state-of-the-art synthetic turf field stadium at the high school. The project was approved by voters as part of the $40.7 million 2021 Facilities Improvement Project.
The field will be used for interscholastic play by the school’s soccer, lacrosse and field hockey teams and for physical education classes for grades 9-12.
The field’s stadium complex will include accessible bleachers for up to 1,000 spectators, a press box, a scoreboard, and a state-of-the-art lighting system.
The field and stadium are expected to be comple-ted sometime in the fall.
As part of the ground-breaking, administrators, coaches and teachers, student-athletes and members of the Board of Education celebrated the start of the project.
