Queensbury High School Breaks Ground on New Athletic Facility
The Queensbury School Community recently broke ground on their new outdoor athletic complex. These new state-of-the-art turf fields will support athletics and physical education programs, as well as allow for community use. It will feature a multi-purpose turf field that will be lined for football, soccer, lacrosse, and field hockey. There will also be turf fields for both baseball and softball.
This athletic facility has been in the planning stages for three years – it was approved by Queensbury UFSD residents as part of a $19.75 million capital improvement package which was proposed in December of 2021. The new turf fields will provide consistent playing surfaces, and extend the use of the fields in early fall and early spring. The use of the facility will also be extended with the addition of lights for nighttime use. These fields will increase the number of practices that a team can have, and also reduce the need for travel in the post-season.
Queensbury has invested in this improvement as a way to help better prepare student athletes for a higher level of play in sectional, regional, and state competition. The turf fields and facilities are expected to be completed by Fall of 2023.
