DAVENPORT, Ia (KWQC)- This summer Assumption High School will break ground on Phase II of the St. Vincent’s Center Athletics Complex development.
The school's Board of Directors approved the $9 million project on Monday, Jan. 28th. Bush Construction of Davenport will manage it.
The project will include the construction of a regulation-sized football and soccer field surrounded by a 400-meter all-weather-surface track. In addition, lights, a 500-seat section of bleachers and a small building with a press box, restrooms and a concession stand will be constructed.
Competition areas for field events and jumps also will be constructed near the track, which will serve as a home to the track and field teams for the Assumption Knights and the St. Ambrose University Fighting Bees, which has a lease agreement with Assumption for use of the facilities.
Also included in the construction project will be some additional parking and a foot bridge connecting the new fields to two existing football/soccer fields and the softball diamond at the complex.
