Trimble County High School is getting its own baseball, softball and tennis facilities.

Previously, football players shared their field with the baseball players. This was accomplished by building a fence across the 40-yard line and then taking it down after baseball season, said Trimble County Schools Superintendant Marcia Dunaway.

Softball players went to the middle school to practice, and tennis players went to the county park.

Now, each of these teams will have a field of their own and both the baseball and softball fields will have their own press box.

The facility will also have locker rooms, a concessions stand and public restrooms.

The work is being done by Kevco Construction, a company based in Louisville, Ky. The architect who designed the project is Stan Klausing.

A large portion of the work is already under way and will be completed by the first of August, including concrete walks, plumbing and electricity, light fixtures and drywall.

Some of the work that will be completed during the month of August is the fencing, scoreboards, and hardware in the restrooms.

The project has a tentative completion date around the first of September, and will be available for use in the upcoming spring sports season.
