Kahuku Red Raiders Football Field Restored by Business & Volunteer Service Project | Business
The following information is provided by Hastings & Pleadwell:
Kahuku High School's Red Raiders Stadium has undergone a four-month restoration. Sizeable donations from contractors working on BYU-Hawaii's campus renewal project transformed the outdated facilities and clumpy football field.
Jacobsen Construction restored track curbing and patching; Jayar Construction fixed stadium drainage and track grading; Layton Construction provided fence repairs; press box upgrades and paint done by Okland Construction and Zelinksky Painting; power washing to bleachers and equipment to upkeep the new field donated by BYU-Hawaii; regular maintenance service to the grass field provided by Molia Salanoa, James Tai Hook, Dwight Fogle, and Vai "Doc" Taula.
The stadium has housed the Red Raiders - perennial Hawaii State championship football team - for decades; however, community volunteers agreed the field was not up to par and the team should have a playing field that matched their prestige.
"We appreciate the many volunteers and businesses who have worked tirelessly to improve our field and its facilities," said Gillian Yamagata, Kahuku athletics director. "Thank you for the opportunity to enjoy these improvements together as a community."
Future potential projects are anticipated for the stadium including remodeling restrooms, enclosing concession areas and building a field storage facility.
