Field of dreams: New turf in place as CHS preps for first game

(Continued)

While CHS will play a pre-season scrimmage on the field, the athletic turf’s debut will come Aug. 30 as the inaugural class of the Hall of Fame is inducted.

The first class contains athletes, coaches and two others who made significant contributions to CHS.

The district has contacted 13 of the 14 inductees or their families, Lueders said. Most will attend the opening game of the season when Clinton plays Davenport North.

Lueders went on to detail the plans for the night. Starting at 5:30 p.m. the school will host a reception and meet and greet in the new gym that will last until 7 p.m.

Students will be assigned to each inductee and their family to act as their hosts for the evening. As the sophomore game ends, the inductees will be escorted around the track before the ceremony starts. They will each receive a plaque.

Lueders anticipates the year and a half of work that has gone into the Hall of Fame will be well worth it.

“Between the field and the hall of fame we should have a pretty good turnout. It should be a very special night,” he said.
