The senior athletes at Dundalk High School were beginning to think they would never get to play in a stadium on their campus before they graduated.
Their new school building, now three years old, stands on the site of the old Dundalk stadium, but construction on the new stadium wasn’t completed until late this summer. For four years, the Owls have played all of their football games, and some other games, at nearby CCBC-Dundalk.
“It was a process that was taking so long,” said Tavaughn Johnson, a receiver and cornerback on the football team. “Finally, our 11th-grade year they was like we might play on it our senior year, so it’s great for us.”
