Bruins Athletics Fields and Track Set To Get Major Upgrades This Summer

The Brookings-Harbor School District is excited to start work on a new multipurpose turf field and track resurfacing project at Brookings-Harbor High School in May 2024. The project vision and support was made possible thanks to the leadership and generosity of South Coast Lumber Co. & Affiliates, Tidewater Contractors, and the Brookings Harbor Booster Club in partnership with the District.

What's Happening:

  • Elmer Bankus Stadium’s grass field will be transformed into a top-notch synthetic turf field. This will be great for football, soccer, track and field, marching band and color guard and other intramural sports and school activities.
  • The running track will get a complete resurfacing with new materials that will last longer, as well as in upgrade to field event areas such as long jump, high jump, pole vault, shotput and javelin. 
  • The new field and track will reflect Bruin Pride with custom colors and markings.
  • The softball in-field, and football practice field areas will get an upgrade during the same construction time frame using school district funds.

The Plan:

The construction will start in May 2024 and aim to finish by Fall 2024. Beynon Sports and FieldTurf are design and construction firms constracted to facilitate this large-scale project. While building is in progress, the Class of 2024 will celebrate its graduation at Lundeen Field at Azalea Park on June 8, 2024. Additionally, the area around the high school stadiums will be off limits during Summer 2024 due to the construction. 

Special Thanks to these Project Partners:

Why It Matters:

This project shows what we can do when we work together with Bruin Pride. The completion will mark the start of a new era of quality facilities for our student athletes and community. These upgrades are a commitment to safer, better athletics and activities facilities for years to come, where our students and community can make memories, achieve individual and team successes,  thrive and be healthy.
