GCCC trustees to discuss new facilities at meeting
By The Telegram
Plans for a new on-campus athletic facility will be discussed at the next Garden City Community College board of trustees meeting.
GCCC officials confirmed last week that they are accepting proposals and bids from companies for the construction of a new football field and track, to be located between Campus Drive and Tangeman Sports Complex. The board of trustees and other administrators will discuss the issue at 6 p.m. Tuesday in the Endowment Room in the Beth Tedrow Student Center, according to a press release from the school.
GCCC is considering removal of the old track just east of campus and construction of a synthetic turf field for football and soccer, as well as a new eight-lane track.
The Broncbuster football and women's soccer teams presently play their home games at Memorial Stadium, which is maintained by USD 457. The football and soccer teams currently dress at the Perryman Athletic Complex and bus to Memorial Stadium for games and practices, and the construction of an on-campus facility would ease transportation issues for games and practices.
According to the release, the new facilities would be intended to also be used for intramural sports, and the track would be open for community use during posted hours.
