As soon as the Burrell School Board voted unanimously in March to renovate Buccaneers Stadium with artificial turf and replace the surrounding track, anticipation began.
“It’s great for the kids,” Burrell athletic director Drake D’Angelo said. “Ultimately, it’s about having better surfaces for our athletes. It’s going to benefit all of our outdoor programs, whether it be baseball or softball that can have a better surface to practice on in the early parts of their season. I’ve seen posts on social media, and I’ve talked to a number of people. Everyone is pretty excited.”
