Considering the omnipresence of delays in any sort of construction, Western Christian must be commended for the ambitious schedule regarding its new football stadium.
After beginning to build the first on-campus facility in the school's 90-year history on Aug. 24, Western Christian is planning to open its new stadium Oct. 15 for its homecoming game against Pasadena Maranatha. So, in less than two months, the Lancers will have constructed their new stadium.
"Some pretty crazy stuff has gone on in the last month," Western Christian athletic director Nick Karavedas said. "We got approval from the city in mid-August and we said, `We have to open it this year.' This is just the first phase but we wanted to get it ready for play and what better time to open it than homecoming?"
Having moved last year from its original campus in West Covina to the former campus of Upland Christian, the smaller eight-man football field of Upland Christian – which was 80 yards by 40 yards – was enlarged to suit Western Christian's 11-man team. Several portable buildings were removed to make room for phase one but additional bleachers and a snack bar will be added at a later date to complete the second phase of construction.
"We had to move some buildings, bring in some additional lighting and a scoreboard and we made the field longer and wider," Karavedas said. "We basically retro-fitted the old eight-man field. And the good thing is this will benefit the football team but the boys and girls soccer teams will be able to play here, too."
