LAHS athletics: Construction delay could affect home schedule

-A A +A

Sullivan Field turf installation was set to be done in time for openers

By Mike Cote

It’s been a busy summer for Los Alamos High School athletic director Vicki Nelms.
Not only has Nelms been away from Los Alamos dealing with personal matters, she found out recently that boys basketball coach Matt King had resigned to take a job in Clovis.
Now, she may have to navigate potential scheduling change for the upcoming fall 2011 season due to the effects of the Las Conchas Fire, specifically early season home games.
Currently, both Sullivan Field, which hosts football and boys and girls soccer games, and Griffith Gymnasium, which houses volleyball, are under renovation. Sullivan Field is having a new artificial surface installed, while Griffith Gym is undergoing mostly cosmetic changes to its façade.
However, the work on the facilities was scheduled to be completed Aug. 18. With a work stoppage due to the fire and impending evacuation, those schedules may have to be altered.
“It had given us a little big of time that everything was supposed to be done Aug. 18,” Nelms said. “Right now, I know they probably won’t be able to make the deadline of the 18th, but we’ll have to see how far behind we are.”
She won’t be able to assess exactly how much time has been lost until work progresses again. Then she’ll know what kind of alterations fall schedules may need.
