Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00
Marshfield High School is ready to reveal their brand new stadium: the Kenneth and Ardyce Heiting Community Stadium.
“We believe this is one of the best facilities in our state,” said Nathan DeLany, Marshfield’s Athletic Director.
DeLany believes this because of all the new features the stadium includes. DeLany says the stadium includes: “A state-of-the-art press box and they have a press box on both sides.”
“We have a new apparel store,” DeLany said. “The concession stand is a big upgrade for our booster club and the plaza area that overlooks the field is probably going to be one of the highlights of our facility.”

The new stadium costs nearly $11.2 million. It will be benefiting more than just the student athletes.

“We have the potential of our high school students having this facility as a beautiful outdoor P.E. classroom,” said Ryan Christianson, Superintendent of Marshfield’s School District. “We have programming going on within our business technology departments. We have things like the game day productions opportunities that our students doing computer work are going to be able to benefit from by using the display board that we have at the stadium here.”

Today was the first time the Marshfield football team was able to practice on the new field. It will be their first home football game this Friday on new turf in nearly 80 years.

“It’s a new home for us and a new place to start a tradition,” said Dennis Goettl, Marshfield’s football head coach. “Everybody in our school is going to be using it, so it’s our school, our community. It’s who we are and what we want to represent.”
