The William Penn (Pa.) district has broken ground on a $14.6 million sports complex at Penn Wood High School in Lansdowne.
The Delaware County Daily Times reports that the renovated Kerr Field will be a sports stadium, complete with a new turf field, track, lighting, bleacher seating and concession stands.
Officials anticipate the football field to be ready in September and the track to be completed by spring 2024.
Football coach Troy Brooks said the new complex would help keep student athletes in the district who in the past have been left to go to other schools that have better facilities.
Mid-Atlantic Sports Construction is the contractor on the project. The firm has designed and built fields for numerous organizations in the region including the Philadelphia Eagles practice facility.
