Field improvements continue for local high school teams

KNOXVILLE, Tenn (WVLT) -- Year two of the three year process to renovate all 13 Knox County high school football stadiums is underway.

Carter High School's field is the toughest challenge out of them all.

"It's a substantially greater job from a site work standpoint. The field construction is just the same as the other fields. The finished product will look just the same as the other fields, but it's a whole lot more site work and dirt work just to get Carter ready because of the elevation problems we have." Said Will Ferguson of Baseline Sports Construction.

Over at Clinton High School, they held a ground-breaking for a $1.4 million indoor athletic complex. New head coach Randy McKamey says it's a show of support for the next generation of kids.

"I think that administration and school board see what impact it can have on kids. They're all wanting to give back. It doesn't mean they have a surplus of money. What it does mean is that they're willing to find it, and willing to make sacrifices to give the kids the best chance." Said Coach Randy McKamey.
