After a series of covert operations from deep sources at Monrovia, we’ve obtained this photo showing the near-completion of Monrovia’s newly constructed football stadium. As you can see, the black asphalt (is that the right term?) is where the rubber track will be laid, and the concrete looks ready for the turf. The campus and the construction site, from what I’ve been told, has been completely off limits to students and personnel. Monrovia’s first scheduled home game is Sept. 17 against Arcadia, and Monrovia AD Randy Bell said he’s hoping the field is ready by then. If not, the Wildcats will turn to plan B, which is to play at a Rio Hondo League stadium. But from the looks of it, the hardest part of the construction is done, like the infrastructure. More on Monrovia in Tuesday’s paper and later on the blog.
