An estimated $ 2.4 million renovation of the sports facilities at Plum High School has been completed.
The projects started with the installation of the turf, track and new lights for the football stadium last summer.
Baseball and softball fields have also been replaced with synthetic turf from Art Global, an artificial turf manufacturer who worked on the football field. This work began around August.
The softball fields were completed at the end of March and the baseball fields were completed in the past two weeks with the first practice on April 30 and the first game on May 1.
“The improvements to our sports facilities will have a very profound effect on our teams,” said Plum athletic director Josh Shoop. “We now have three different areas for our teams to train on synthetic turf most of the year. These areas will provide Plum teams and the Plum community with sports areas that can be used at all times thanks to the artificial surface but also to lighting. We will also be able to collect revenue from external organizations that will directly benefit the Plum Borough School District. “
