Construction crews began ripping up the track at Milford High School on Wednesday, June 5 in preparation for a new surface. The revamped track should be fully accessible and ready to use within four to six weeks, weather permitting, in plenty of time for the start of the fall sports season on Aug. 15.

Milford School District Supervisor of Building and Grounds Glen Stevenson said that the track’s surface will feel nearly the same, but “the technology is always getting better, so it will definitely be an improvement for the athletes.”

The rubberized surface was first constructed in 2004 as the turf football field was added in 2008. While the track team practices and competes on the track, athletes from numerous sports use the facility.

“Fitness is very important to my program, and we do a lot of running on the track,” said MHS head field hockey coach Andrea Fleming. “I’m glad the district is furthering improvements to the athletic fields to make them safer and nicer for our student-athletes.”
