• Southmoreland High School loses football field to flooding for a least a few weeks

    Updated:

    ALVERTON, Pa. - The Southmoreland High School Scotties will go without home field advantage for at least a few weeks.

    The football field is still a mess after Friday’s flooding.

    The principal said he has been in contact with the company that installed the artificial turf.

    “They're looking to see when they can get a crew out here.  We're going to go week to week in terms of how long it will take to complete the job,” said Principal Dan Krofcheck. 

    The field was just seven years old and was loosened by a creek that jumped its banks. 

    The district is working with other schools to reschedule games.  Students play a number of sports on the field, including soccer and football.  The marching band and youth football leagues also use the field.
