For Pontiac High School, this project impacts every outdoor athletic team by either updating their existing facilities or developing new ones on site. The existing track and grass field are replaced with a new urethane track and artificial turf field. Flanked with new bleachers, the turf field is striped for football, soccer, and lacrosse allowing home games to be played on site instead of traveling across town to Wisner stadium. North of the stadium are new clay and natural grass softball and baseball fields bringing those sports back to campus after a long absence. Between the updated stadium and new ball fields is a support building housing athletic storage, concessions, toilet rooms, and officials’ lockers. Topped with backlit polycarbonate panels, this new support building becomes a beacon for fans attending games.

Project Overview

As part of the 2020 Capital Bond Program, Pontiac High School is scheduled to have a completely new outdoor athletic facility that includes new baseball and softball diamonds, new track and field amenities, a new synthetic turf football field, stadium, press box and concession building. The new sports complex will be complete in time for the home opening football game in the fall of 2021.
