Why would you want opponents to "look forward to coming to our school"? It's not a beauty contest. Fields do not make players. Some of the best players in the world come out of the Dominican Republic. Pretty sure they don't have manicured grass and rock free infields.

I'm glad for the high school students to have good sports facilities. However, the School Board is not charged with the effect on the neighborhood. The City Council should have some influence on the use of playing fields by outside groups on nights and weekends.
