St. Francis High hopes to keep athletes close with new stadium
WHEATON – The chorus of “bring it back, all back home” went along with the St. Francis High School choir during the school’s groundbreaking ceremony for its new athletic stadium and track.
The new Kuhn Memorial Stadium and Scott Nelson Track – named for current track coach Nelson – will provide athletes and fans from the school an on-campus home site for the first time in five years. The teams had been practicing and playing at various Wheaton Park District lands and the College of DuPage since 2009 due to constant flooding of the area, making scheduling games difficult.
“It’s really exciting,” said rising senior Savanna Roe, a player on the state champion soccer team and dancer at St. Francis. “[It means] games at our school. We’ve never had that.”
