Trinity Academy to build stadium, track

Trinity Academy announced Wednesday its plans to build a $2.6 million stadium and track on its campus.

The Christian High School, located at 12345 E. 21st Street, plans to build the 1,600-seat stadium east of the school.

It will feature an artificial turf field, synthetic track and lighting. A facility will also be constructed to house a locker room and concession stand. Additional parking, an outdoor commons area and a walk of faith are other features that will be included in the project, according to a news release from Trinity.

“Trinity currently plays its ‘home’ football games in Towanda, 20 miles away, and the track team practices on an asphalt road affectionately dubbed ‘the road of pain,’” said Matt Brewer, headmaster. “It will be a blessing to our students and community to have a facility where we can practice and play.”

Trinity announced that $1.1 million of the $2.6 million needed to fund the project has already been raised privately. The remaining funds will be raised through private donations.

ATG Sports has been named as the contractor for the project, which is scheduled to be finished in fall 2013.

A groundbreaking event is planned for Friday night.
