With last year’s addition of the new multi-purpose facility for athletics and academics, the Lee community might have thought that they were ahead of the game as far as athletic facilities were concerned. In a sense, they were. But other sports venues that had long been ignored can now also boast a new and improved home on campus. The brand new soccer, track, and tennis facilities are finally complete and ready for use now.

Track runner Desirae Cutts (10) said, “They have been working hard on our new facilities all summer.”  Cutts and the soccer team are siked about the new track and field located right across the street from the Ninth Grade Academy on Leslie Highway.

Jayda Angry (10), a sophomore shot put thrower said, “It will be easier for our track and field event participants to thoroughly practice. We actually have something to work with rather than before when we had to go behind the fence in the grass to practice.” Prior to the new practice area, the team did not have any place set up to practice field events and was unable to host any home meets.

With new facilities, several teams will have the ability to practice most days and get a better feel for what actual games and meets will be like.

The school no only put in a new track, shot put pit, pole vault launch and  soccer field, but the school was also gifted with a brand new tennis court.

Taylor Bates (12), a senior tennis player said, “Now I don’t have to drive all the way to the Doublegate Country Club for tennis practice after school.”

The teams will not only be able to practice on new courts, but they can also now host matches, meets and games. This will allow the athletes to make more money for their own team.

The student athletes are all excited for the new facilities and hope that the new complex school built will help expand the athletic community.

Morgan York (10) said, “You already know I’m excited about the new track, and I’m ready to get my new track cleats on the track for sophomore season.”

The new tennis courts are located on Starksville Street, right beside the Board of Education offices. The other new arenas are closer to the Ninth Grade Campus but are still close enough to the main campus to feel like part of the same facility.

    I think that this article was fluently written. The new sports complexes are very interesting topics, and you did a great job on covering them.

    I think that all of the new sports facilities are great. I know there wasn’t a tennis court before, so having one now is very convenient. Also, I find that the new track looks great!

    I think that they wrote this article very well and it was easy to read. It flowed smoothly and there were not parts that I didn’t understand. Good job, and I’d love to read more.

    I think that the article was greatly written and was truly interesting. I am so pleased that the school spent the time and money to get these teams their own practice areas. They really deserved it with everything they have done.
