Football fans who attend games at Clear Fork High School might well notice something a bit different this fall.

The “Colt Corral” is sporting a new surface.

A $900,000 project is nearing completion, giving the stadium its first-ever artificial playing surface. It’s the culmination of intense fundraising by the Clear Fork Athletic Boosters Club.

The idea for the new field first surfaced some eight years ago, however the current effort began in earnest just this past July. In making the decision to move ahead with the plan, officials were contacted in other school districts which had made similar investments.

In a strange twist of fate, the new Colt Corral will see less football action this fall than many other stadiums. The Colts’ home opener on September 6 against Granville High School will be one of just four home games for Clear Fork this fall in its standard ten game season.

The other visitors to experience the new turf this year will be Bellevue, Marion Harding, and Ontario High Schools.

Clear Fork High School is in the Mid Ohio Athletic Conference, together with area schools Shelby, Galion, and Ontario.
