Ground broken for athletic fields
Duvall Mayor Becky Nixon and Carnation Deputy Mayor Yvonne Funderburg attended the groundbreaking of the new Cedarcrest athletic fields May 20, along with Riverview Superintendent Conrad Robertson, members of the school board, architect Dave Anderson, representatives from Ohno Construction, members of the Bond Committee, construction manager, field design committee, and the soccer, track and football coaches. Robertson said that if everything goes as scheduled, the football players will be playing their second home game of next year on the new football field. Supporters are hoping to secure grants for baseball and soccer fields, and will be holding a fund-raising effort tied to a July 5 Mariners game.
