(WICKES) Cossatot River School District Superintendent Jim Tankersley reported in his report to the school board that the ball field project at Cossatot River High School will begin on Monday.
The project will see a new soccer field, baseball and softball fields at the Wickes campus.
Tankersley said that the teams spent more time on the road playing their opponents last year and with the construction of the new ball fields will have the district seeing a savings in travel costs.
The district is hoping to change the minds of leaders with the Arkansas Activities Association in proposing a move of the schools from its current region of opponents, to a proposed move to playing schools as near as Waldron. Most of those schools are around the Fort Smith area. No decision has been made on the realignment.
