Kenosha Unified School District – Athletic Facilities Project
In April 2015, Kenosha residents voted to pass a $16.7 million referendum plan to improve the district’s athletic facilities, including Bradford High School’s first athletic stadium and the renovation of Tremper High School’s existing athletic stadium, Ameche Field. The project included work at Bullen Middle school and Indian Trial High School.
Bradford High School has produced many great athletes, most recently Melvin Gordon and Trae Waynes, who are now in the NFL. They trained these football players with no football field on campus. Years prior, Bradord used Carthage College’s (another Camosy project) Stadium and shared Ameche Field and Indian Trail’s Football field. Bradford’s project includes a new athletic stadium featuring a synthetic turf field surrounded by a colored urethane-surfaced running track, home and away bleachers, a concession stand, restrooms, and a team building. Bradford’s parking lot was expanded to a total of 415 parking spaces. The project includes new bleachers and a synthetic infield for the varsity baseball diamond and a new tennis court facility, as well as a new varsity softball diamond featuring a synthetic infield for both varsity and junior varsity softball teams and a multipurpose practice Bradford High School has produced many great athletes, most recently Melvin Gordon and Trae Waynes, who are now in the NFL. They trained these football players with no football field on campus.
Tremper High School had an athletic stadium, but it was extremely old and desperately needed replacement. The original Ameche Field was torn down and replaced with a new athletic stadium featuring a colored urethane track, home and away bleachers, a concession stand, restrooms, and a team-building space. Before the referendum, Tremper did not have a track suitable for sanctioned Track & Field meet. The new track and associated field events areas now allow Tremper to host any sanctioned competition. Along with the stadium, the project includes a new press box and synthetic infield for a varsity baseball diamond, a new tennis court facility, an improved junior varsity football field, a new perimeter fence, and asphalt walking paths.
Indian Trail High School and Academy, a previous Camosy project, also received a few new athletic upgrades. New bleachers and synthetic infield for a varsity baseball diamond and varsity softball diamond along with a resurfaced track featuring a colored urethane surface.
