Battle of the Fields: Tri-Valley League

Wow. That was my first reaction when I saw how many votes the SEK League football field winner took on.

The “Labette County Grizzly Nation” either came out in full force or Lucas Field is a football fan favorite. (Why not both?)

Here are the results from the Battle of the Fields: SEK League edition.

Labette County‘s Lucas Field ran away with almost 82% of the votes. Pittsburg‘s Hutchinson Stadium received 4.7% of the votes with Chanute‘s “Cosmosphere” receiving 4.5% of the votes.

Thank you to all who voted in the SEK League poll.

We now shift our focus on to the Tri-Valley League. However, before we do that it is noted that Eureka will not be an option to vote for due to the destruction of their field from last year’s June tornado.

Talking with Eureka Football head coach Jason Nichols, the field should be ready by Week 4, which is Homecoming against league foe Fredonia.

“The latest from the BOE is they’re hoping it will be ready for week 4 for homecoming vs Fredonia. We’ll be on the road until then.” said Nichols.

Nichols added, “They have made quite a bit of progress (these) last few weeks. Assuming the weather cooperates, I think we’ll have a field this season.”

Thank you to Coach Nichols for sending us the progress pictures of the Eureka High School football field.

Thank you once again to contributor Kenny Elrod for making the sweep of the Tri-Valley League’s football stadiums.

The question is very simple: Which of the Tri-Valley League stadiums do you enjoy watching a game of high school football from? The link to the poll is at the bottom of the article. Please be sure to share, tag, tweet, e-mail this article to your friends, family, coaches and former players.
