The old press box, which was built in the 1970’s is being renovated as the next phase of the Stand Up for City High Campaign that began in 2010. The project will cost about $140,000, and all of the money is coming from the campaign. The renovation includes putting new windows on, as well as residing the press box. This way, the old press box, which is now white, will be red and match the new press box. The project should be completed by the end of February.

“[We’re] just happy to have the next phase of our campaign completed and to continue the process of modernizing our stadium,” athletic director Terry Coleman said.
