Eagles ready for new season

A new softball field and a formidable new member of their conference are the highlights of the new fall sports season at Southern Boone High School.

Athletes have been practicing for more than a week activities director Pat Lacy said the number of athletes continues to increase each year.

SoBoCo Middle School athletes and coaches were scheduled to meet Monday evening.

The biggest excitement for the new fall season is at the high school campus where a new softball/baseball field has been built this past summer.

The field includes a complete artificial surface, new scoreboard and is easily converted from softball to baseball.

Previously, both Eagles teams played on the ball field behind the Middle School. That space will now be utilized for MS softball practice as well as MS football practice.

“We have worked within our available space to have a complex like what they have at Fulton,” Lacy said.
