Crews break ground on a newer and better seating area and press box at the football fields in mid November. The new and improved stadium is expected to bring in more fans to sporting activities held on our field.  Junior Stephen Collins is excited to see the effects of the new stadium.

“I’m excited to see how the newer stadium will bring in more fans,” Collins said. “I hope that a new and improved stadium will help our fans cheer louder than they have in the past.”

The Championship Drive project began in 2014. The first phase included a fieldhouse for softball, girls soccer, and girls track. The second phase comprised of a fieldhouse/weight room/batting cages. Phase three of Championship drive is the new stadium. Although Father Gary Kastl  didn’t come to Bishop Kelley until the beginning of 2018, he still played a role in the stadium planning.

“I didn’t come into the picture until 2018,” Kastl said. “My role in the planning was to change the design of the new stadium to get it back under budget.”

Not only will the stadium look nicer than the old one, it comes with many beneficial features that cater to many people. The press box will already be equipped with the necessary cables and cameras for BK Media to stream the games. Athletic Director Lance Parks is enthusiastic about the new levels of comfort that the new stadium will bring to the attendees of the games.

“The new stadium will give us the ability to better host our handicapped and elderly. 200 seats will also have a back to them,” Parks said. “I’m most excited about elements of this project that will impact and influence all the areas of the Bishop Kelley community. It will be a great place for everyone.”

Phase three of Championship drive will be completed by the start of next football season.
