New multipurpose field set to open at Eastlake | Community sports news

The new field at Eastlake High School will open with a ceremony on March 13 before the school's season-opening baseball game.

The City of Sammamish and the Lake Washington School District will celebrate the opening of the new multi-purpose sports field at Eastlake High School in a ceremony on March 13 that will preceded the Wolves’ season-opener against Snohomish in baseball.

The ceremony begins at 5 p.m. and the varsity baseball game begins an hour later.

Deputy Mayor Ramiro Valderrama-Aramayo and district superintendent Dr. Traci Pierce will be on hand for the celebration.

The approximately $1.9 million allocated for the project came in the 2011-2012 parks capital improvement fund. The project upgraded the varsity baseball field to a synthetic turf multi-use for baseball, softball, soccer, lacrosse and football.
