Our neglected fields used for football, soccer, and track are in dyer need of maintenance and fixing. From the holes in the ground, to the excessive amount of dirt and loose gravel, our practice fields have led to bad injuries. One major injury happened to our PE instructor and health teacher, Mr. Bennett.

Many athletes complain that the grass fields by the OA library, behind the playground, and the field we share with Orcutt Junior High have way too many holes to practice on safely. When asking varsity soccer player Micah Rousher about the field conditions, he had the following to say:  

¨I hate the fact that we don’t have an actual stadium, or even a turf field. But the fields that we have now are pretty trash; there are a bunch of holes, along with uneven cut grass. I know that I have fell a few times and I know other players have too. The fact that a varsity team has to play on such bad fields is pretty sad.¨

I’m not inquiring that we should build a whole stadium, but there’s little things that the school district can put into our fields that don’t require too much effort or money. For example, filling the holes in the ground even with dirt just to avoid injury would be beneficial for every athlete.
