WELCH, WV (WVNS)– On Friday, Oct. 18, the Mount View Golden Knights will be playing on their home field for the last time. After Friday, the Golden Knights will play on a brand new turf field at the high school.
Director of Facilities, Will Chapman said for many years, people have been asking and fundraising for a new football field and it has finally become a reality for the McDowell County school.
“Very awesome. I think it will benefit the youth programs as well, you know we have youth soccer league here and they have a hard time finding a decent place to be,” Chapman said. “It’s going to benefit the whole community and I think it will be something the community can rally around as well.”
Mt. View will hold a field dedication on Thursday, Oct. 17 at 2 p.m. at the high school. The Golden Knights (3-3) will host Tug Valley (3-3) on Friday night in Welch.
