Why Wakefield, you may ask?
Because November 5th will be the first game on Burlington High School's NEW VARSITY FIELD!!! Since the beginning of school our athletic field and its surrounding area have been torn up while the school has replaced the deteriorating and unsafe bleachers on both home and visitor sides and installed a new turf field. And guess what! We now have the same turf that is used at Gillette Stadium. We don't fool around!
Beginning at 6:25 pm, there will be a special Opening Ceremony for the new facility with Mr. Field as Master of Ceremonies. All town officials will be present.
Following that there will also be a special Senior Recognition Ceremony beginning at approximately 6:45. Seniors from the Marching Band, Dance Squad, Color Guard, football team and cheerleading squad will be introduced with their parents/guardians and take the field in recognition of their achievements at BHS. Athletes from other fall sports will also be acknowledged.
So...fair warning...arrive a bit early if you would like to park close, choose a great viewing spot on the new bleachers and revel in the excitement of our new VARSITY FIELD!
Opening Ceremonies will start at 6:25 p.m. with kickoff scheduled for 7 p.m. The new members of the BHS Athletic Hall of Fame will be announced at halftime. Tickets are on sale at school in the cafeteria lobby during lunch and after lunch in the athletic office until 3 p.m. Tickets will also be available at the gate.
GO BIG RED!
