  • Newly Renovated McGaffin Field

    We are excited to be hosting our first home football game this Friday, August 30th at newly renovated McGaffin Field! The stadium is near completion, but there are a few items not completed so we ask for your patience. We are looking forward to having 500+ more bleacher seats for Husky fans!

    A few notes as we open the new stadium:

    • Main parking will be in the lots north of the stadium. The lot between the stadium and the field will be closed due to construction.

    • Fans will enter the at the northwest corner of the stadium. 

    • Please remain on the sidewalk as we are in the process of seeding.

    • Tailgaiting is allowed up until the first event (4:45 PM, 9th grade football). All district policies must be followed.

    • Please see the seating chart below.

    *Elementary students are asked to sit with their parents.*
