The district kicked off construction of the new track and field facility at Hendrick Hudson High School this week with a ceremonial groundbreaking.
“This project will transform our athletic facilities, and both our students and the community will enjoy them for years to come,” said Superintendent Joseph Hochreiter.
Wielding shovels to mark the start of the much-anticipated project were Director of School Facilities, Operations and Maintenance Anthony Merlini; Hendrick Hudson High School Principal James Mackin; Athletic Director Tom Baker; School Board President Barbara Pettersen; Superintendent Joseph Hochreiter; Project Manager (KSQ Design) Alex Soto; Construction Manager Robert Firneis (Savin Engineers); and General Contractor Tom DeRosa (DeRosa Contracting).
“This is a very exciting time for our community, and we are very grateful to everyone who came out to vote for the bond and make this possible,” said Pettersen.
The track and field area will be off-limits to the community while construction takes place. It is expected that the new facilities will be open by the beginning of October.
“This will be an unbelievable complex that will serve our current and future athletes,” said Baker. “It is extremely exciting to see the project breaking ground.”
