New Sports Complex Finished and Ready for Play

After nearly a year of construction, SVHS’s brand new sports complex is complete. SVUSD officials voted unanimously in May of 2020 to approve construction of the $15 million complex, and construction began shortly afterwards. The 17-acre complex was built with the help of 85 workers. 

The finished, lighted complex consists of six outdoor basketball courts, a hybrid soccer/football/lacrosse field enclosed by a track, a clubhouse complete with a snack bar and restrooms, two softball fields, one baseball field, and one open grass area. All areas except for the basketball courts and open grass field remain locked and fenced.

Hunter Belleville, junior and track team member, is “very excited to be able to run on the new track and use the whole clubhouse” in his last year as a Dragon.

On May 26, SVHS’s outgoing Class of ‘21 will celebrate their achievements at the Senior Awards  on the brand new multi-purpose field, which is adjacent to a 1,400 seat grandstand. This occasion is expected to be the first major event to take place on the new field. One week later on Thursday, June 4, graduation will take place. More information on graduation is pending county COVID guidelines.

Field users not associated with a permitted organization or team  must obtain an approved permit for legal field use. A sign has been posted on the main entrance with general rules and guidelines. For approved users, the field will be open from dawn until “lights out” time in the evening. It is closed during school hours.

 The Sonoma Index-Tribune stated that there was lots of “discussion and controversy” over the course of the project, but SVHS athletic director concludes that it is ultimately “a positive.”
