ENTERPRISE, Ala. (WDHN) — If you’re driving on the Boll Weevil Circle, you may see land clearing on Enterprise High School’s campus.
For the first time in the school’s 10-year existence, the Wildcat baseball and softball teams will play their games on campus.
In addition, an indoor hitting facility is being built.
Over the years, the school has traveled to the Enterprise Recreation Park on Highway 167 to play their home games.
District Superintendent Greg Faught said safety is a big reason to keep students on-campus.
“In addition to it being a beautiful complex, we’re gonna be able to have our students here on campus, student athletes, so anytime you can do that, that’s a bonus,” Faught said. “Anytime kids don’t have to leave campus when they can walk right out their classrooms into a locker room and not get into a vehicle or a bus, that’s definitely an advantage for them.”
Recent rain has slowed excavation work but the $4.1 million baseball and softball complex is expected to be completed by January 2021.
