SHERMAN, TX - The Sherman ISD Board of Trustees approved $337,000 in improvements to Bearcat Stadium.

At last night's school board meeting trustees voted to strip the current field and install a new drainage system underneath a new field made up of special sand, sod and grass.

The improvements are to keep the field from becoming a swampy mess during heavy rains, as has been the case in years past.

Sherman ISD Superintendent Dr. Al Hambrick says these improvements were necessary.

"The field conditions last year we thought increased the risk of injury to our students. It was important to us to provide a safe place for our students to perform and that the field was useful," Hambrick said.

Work is scheduled to begin in May and should be finished before football season begins in August.
