Superintendent hopeful that some day district will be able to purchase it for Tiger Stadium
By Daniel Elizondo
Many at Tiger Stadium were disappointed on several plays that saw football players from both Silsbee and Newton sliding for their lives on Friday, Sept. 2.
For many skill players, footing was a problem, however, it is duly noted that the area has received an exorbitant amount of rain in the last several months.
“When we did a core test to resurface the track, the engineers found water at about a foot deep,” Silsbee Superintendent Richard Bain said. “It was coming up like crude oil. It’s just one of those things that is indicative of our area.”
