Bakersfield High School’s Griffith Field is getting a makeover, and many of the renovations will be ready before football season starts.
Jack Colvard with the Kern High School District says the changes are needed because having a California Interscholastic Federation-approved facility gives the Drillers home field advantage in state contests. Colvard added that kids around campus are excited for the upgrades.
Improvements include a sod field, all weather track with new bleachers, and new concession stand. The project is being paid for with capital improvements funding and some fundraising from alumni.
