Lexington High reopens softball with a ‘good cut’ — of a ribbon that is
LEXINGTON, S.C. — On Tuesday, March 7, 2017, Lexington High School reopens its newly renovated softball field with an official ribbon cutting just before the varsity softball game against Spring Valley High. The ribbon cutting takes place at home plate at 7:20 p.m., and Dr. Gregory D. Little, superintendent, will throw out the first pitch before the varsity game.
The district built Lexington High School in 1977. However, the original football, baseball and softball games were played on the recreation league fields. LHS first added softball fields and the original dugout in 1992. Later additions included lighting at the softball field in 1995, and outdoor bleachers and a press box with bathroom facilities before or in 2001. A new softball scoreboard addition happened in 2016.
The $547,374 renovations and upgrades include dugouts with storage areas, a backstop with padding, hitting facility with cement and indoor-outdoor carpeting, bullpens, press box, restrooms, drainage system, playing surface, sound system, windscreen, painted foul poles, paved and lighted walkway and a gated entrance.
