Athens Drive boosters pressure WCPSS
July 12, 2012Tri-Nine Conference
Athens Drive High School boosters have hired a lawyer and plan to take legal action if the Wake County Public School System does not act soon to repair Williams Stadium. The Jag Club says it has waited long enough for renovations to the aging facility, which has too many safety problems to be ignored much longer.
The stadium, which hosts football, soccer, lacrosse and track and field events, hasn’t had major improvements since it opened in 1978. Former booster president and current Jag Club adviser Karin Evanoff says she hopes a lawsuit will not be necessary. Boosters want the repairs to be a high priority on the next school construction bond.
“That’s our last-ditch effort,” Evanoff said. “That’s not what we want to do, but if it happens to be that if Athens is looked over again, and again and again, then that’s our only option.
“If I start to hear from our reps … that Athens is again not on that list as a priority, then the gloves come off.”
