At Kings Mountain, there is a creek that runs directly underneath the field. Many people do not know this. In the 60's, a 6ft corrugated drain was installed, and I'm not sure it's ever been replaced, but over the last couple of years we noticed a change in the way the field drained. The corrugated drain was rusted out, and had crushed in several places, and the creek plus additional rain took it's toll on the whole South Endzone area, starting from about the 30 through the endzone. Crest and West Rowan got to experience this, because as luck would have it, most of our games last year were played on this end.
The sprinkler system was also going to have to be replaced, so the logical choice was to look at all the long term expenses. Fortunately we have a strong organization KMTD Club that will privately raise funds to install the Field, Track, and Tennis Courts and then turn it over to the County Schools for future maintenance. This old coach will be glad NOT to paint anymore ticks.
