By Ray Hamill — Just days after a disappointing loss at Del Norte and the cancelation of this weekend’s scheduled game at Piedmont, the Eureka Loggers got some good news on Friday.

The school officially announced that the Loggers will be able to host their Homecoming game at Albee Stadium in two weeks.

With the iconic local stadium set to undergo renovation and the field conditions tentative at best, it was expected that they would have to switch venues for the big showdown against Del Norte, which will be the team’s final regular season home game.

But with a lack of rain so far this fall and little or none expected any time soon, the field now looks certain to be available for use for the game, which will be played on Saturday, Oct. 22.

The planned renovation includes installing a new all-weather field on a site that has severe drainage problems.

The new field is only part of the new construction either planned or already under way at Eureka High.

A new gymnasium is scheduled to open this winter, while new baseball and softball fields are also being planned.

The Homecoming game is set for 7:30 p.m., with the JVs playing at 5.
