The Lebanon High football team’s Air Raid offense makes it the greatest show on grass. Now the Cedars will have an equivalent stage on which to showcase their talents.
Lebanon Alumni Stadium, one of the most historic sporting venues locally, is getting a much-needed face-lift. The Lebanon school board recently voted to renovate the Cedars’ gridiron home, improvements which will include a new scoreboard, a new sound system and new lights.
For years, Lebanon Alumni Stadium, which is located at North Seventh and Lehman streets, directly behind Lebanon Middle School in the city, has been the worst lit football facility in the Lancaster-Lebanon League.
The total cost of the renovation project is estimated to be over $418,000. The last improvements on Lebanon Alumni Stadium were performed 18 years ago.
The lighting contract, estimated at $214,000, was awarded to Musco Sports Lighting. Included in the lighting project are installation, fixtures, poles and a 25-year maintenance warranty.
Work is should start soon and is expected to be completed by September’s start of the 2015 season.
The project does not include the installation of artificial turf.
