Monte school board OKs grandstands design

The state champion Montesano High School football team will probably have to play its first “home” game next season away from home, and maybe the second, but there’s hope that new grandstands at Rottle Field will be completed by October. On Thursday, the Montesano School Board unanimously approved plans to rebuild the grandstands, which burned last September.

That would leave at least three home games for Bulldog football. The girls soccer team, which played some games at Stewart Field in Aberdeen and some at Rottle Field without seating, should be able to host a crowd for at least part of its season.
