Improvements Being Made to BRHS Athletic Facilities

August 12, 2014 at 4:00 PM

BRIDGEWATER, NJ - Board of education member Aaron Kurdyla said July 22 that the district is making progress on several summer projects throughout the district.

The Basilone turf field renovation at the Bridgewater-Raritan High School is running on schedule, he said, as the turf has been torn up and will be completely replaced with brand new turf later on in the summer.

As for the symbol at the center of the new turf, the Athletic Club raised $8,000 for the B-R sign that is similar to the one on the old turf field.

“We are going to use the same design for the B-R symbol,” Kurdyla said. “It shows the ‘B’ and ‘R’ interlocking to symbolize the unity of the two communities.”

Kurdyla also brought to the board’s attention the need to improve the middle and high school tracks, with the high school needing the most improvement. While there is no stated plan on the track renovations yet, Kurdyla explained that it is going to be a main focus in the future.

Additionally, the issues concerning the middle school tennis courts were discussed, as they are in very poor condition and currently locked up because they are not safe to use. Kurdyla said they did not plan to get completely new courts because they would rather try and fix the old ones.

“We are still discussing our plans for the tennis courts, but we do not plan on getting rid of them, we want to try and maintain and fix them first,” he said.

While the estimated cost for repairing tennis courts was estimated at $200,000, Kurdyla said they will do something to fix them and make them a part of the middle school’s physical education curriculum again.
