Other than some new sprinklers, the soccer field will also have installed in it a drainage system. This drainage system will be installed the same time as the sprinklers and is said to make the field better by making it more tolerant to the rain. This will allow the field to absorb the water so that there are not any mud puddles lingering around the field and causing any trouble for anyone who happened to walk through the field after some rain.
The new drainage system also provides with it some relief for any students wanting to play sports on the field. "If the field didn't have mud then that would be better cause I wouldn't have to step in mud and get my shoes dirty," said Mike Calderoun. The new drainage would absorb the excess water it receives from rain coming down and then make it so that the grass is dry and and no puddles make a mess for anyone walking on the field. This system helps the sports that use the field as a way to play their games or to practice such as soccer and football.
Athletics has also gained similar benefits in the past, such as equipment for the sports and the weight room that is stationed on the second floor of the gym. A year and a half ago, Costa Mesa Athletics was granted a seventy-thousand dollar loan by Costa Mesa United, which was used to buy equipment for the weight room. "There was a loan of seventy thousand dollars that was used to supply the weight room with new equipment," said Mr. Kiefer, the Boys Athletics Director and P.E Teacher. The loan was also used to provide for the needs of sports, but most of the money was spent on providing for the weight room.
In the future the Atheltics Department may issue some more changes that will be beneficial to students playing sports. With the new drainage and sprinkler systems, the Athletics Department hopes to better the activities of sports by keeping the field a clean and able place for students to play.
