LAHS: Nelms hopes work is done in time for soccer tourney

By Mike Cote

Things are still progressing at Sullivan Field, but not quite as quickly as was hoped.
Los Alamos High School has had to move some early fall season games from Sullivan Field to White Rock, but athletic director Vicki Nelms said she thinks work should be completed in time for one of the school’s premier fall events.
Sullivan Field, the longtime home of Los Alamos’ football and soccer teams, is getting its old natural grass surface replaced with artificial surface.
Work began on Sullivan Field just days after the 2010-11 sports season finished.
The resurfacing of the field was scheduled to be completed in time for or close to the start of school, Aug. 15, but has experienced delays over the summer, not the least of which was the evacuation of town due to the effects of the Las Conchas Fire in late June.
Crews are still working to mitigate potential under-surface drainage issues — drainage has long been a problem at Sullivan Field — and finish time has been pushed back.
“Our goal is to have it up and ready for the Louie Cernicek Tournament,” said Nelms. “But we’ve always had a backup plan in case.”
