The new football field and track.

As the 2018–2019 school year begins, the school district continues to show off new additions to Lake Havasu High School such as the brand new track, field, bleachers and much more.

The new Lee Barnes Stadium was completed by several local companies such as Campbell Redi-Mix and others. The first game played on the field will be the 50th Golden Shovel game against the Mohave Thunderbirds on August 31.

With the new field came the new track as well. The track is made with a polyurethane material. This means that the cheerleaders that were previously unable to do certain stunts will now be able to, unlike before because of risks. The field is also made with FieldTurf; with this addition the field will continue to maintain its appearance. Not only will the FieldTurf look better, but it will also keep the athletes safer and keep maintenance costs low. The annual costs for a grass field over a 10 year time span is estimated to cost more than $1 million. Without the use of herbicides, pesticides, re-sodding, water and mowing, the new FieldTurf will cost LHUSD $730,000.

Additionally, the stands and parking lot were expanded and the press box, snack shack, bathrooms were upgraded.

The new track and field aren’t the only new features that will be shown off at the Golden Shovel game; the Lake Havasu High School Band of Knights will debut their new uniforms to the public.

“The Band of Knights [is] very excited to be able to have these uniforms to show off what we love to do and worked to raise so much money for,” said junior Ashley Pruett who plays the trumpet. All-in-all, the football players, cheerleaders and band members can’t wait to show off the new additions made to the school.
