Hyde Stadium Renovation Project Update

Tuesday, March 3, 2015

-Discussions & planning continues on the Hyde Stadium Renovation project which is still scheduled to begin at the end of the Post 8 Baseball season this August. Originally the project was estimated to cost 1.2 million dollars but according to members of the Hyde Stadium Design committee, since the first estimate was made nearly 18 months ago, construction costs have increased.

Members of the design committee are set to meet with a representative from Musco Lighting tomorrow. Musco is an American privately owned company, based out of Oskaloosa, Iowa that is noted for providing permanent or temporary lighting at major sports events and stadiums including the Super Bowl and Olympics.

The leaders of the design committee have told KCCR Radio that they plan to bid within the next 2-3 weeks. Now that construction costs have increased since the original estimate, fundraising efforts will begin once the actual project costs are known.

Governors Begin Postseason Tonight

Tuesday, March 3, 2015

After a roller coaster ride of a regular season which included its fair share of heart stopping moments, the Pierre Governor basketball team erases that memory & begins looking towards the postseason & the journey to another state tournament berth tonight. The first step to get back to the state tournament will be the Mitchell Kernels. Tonight marks the third meeting between the Governors & Kernels with Mitchell winning both regular season meetings.
