The football field at Marana High School is more than just a place for the Tigers to play – it’s a source of community pride and a gathering place for residents. So when a severe monsoon storm left the new and nearly completed turf field in shambles, it felt like a blow to the whole town.
But Marana is a resilient community, and it was not about to let a little (or a lot) of storm damage stop progress. A day after the storms passed, members of the community began rallying together to get the field repaired and ready for Friday night lights.
Volunteers from the community, local churches, public safety and even a scheduled opponent (Salpointe Catholic), arrived at 3pm today to help school staff and students move the displaced turf back into place.
Though the storm temporarily slowed progress of the new turf field install and caused other significant damage, The people of Marana stepped up without hesitation and displayed what it truly means to be #MaranaStrong. “When challenges arise, we meet them as one.”
