Work on Battlin’ Bear Stadium, which began following the approval by the LCM Board of Trustees of the installation of artificial turf over the existing football field, will continue into August, bumping the location of the first home game versus Hardin-Jefferson to BISD Memorial Stadium in Beaumont. Along with turf, improvements to the stadium include replacing the existing track, installing a new scoreboard, and other renovations as funds allow.
“Of course, we would have loved for our first home game of the 2022-2023 season to have taken place in our refurbished facilities,” Superintendent Stacey Brister said. “It’s just not going to be possible right now, but we know how hard everyone is working. When the improvements are unveiled, and our players step onto the field for the first time under those Friday night lights, all the waiting will be worthwhile.”
The game versus Hardin-Jefferson will kickoff at 7:00p.m on Thursday, August 25, 2022.
Also due to scheduling and facility issues, Meet The Bears Night will be canceled this year.
