It was great to see the excavation equipment going at it on Thursday at Jacob Hespeler, the location of the eight-lane track and artificial playing surface that is scheduled to be ready for September.
Jacob Hespeler athletic director Greg White tells me the venue will be used next spring to host the OFSAA West track and field meet.
Kudos to the folks over in Cambridge for getting it done while Kitchener folks sit back and watch Centennial Stadium crumble to the ground.
