Above: The old Monrovia stadium is old no more.
Monrovia High will hold a ribbon-cutting ceremony Friday at 5:30 p.m. to unveil its newly-renovated football stadium. Monrovia (0-1) hosts Arcadia (0-1) in Week 2, but regardless of the outcome it’s bound to be a special night for Monrovia fans. The state-of-the-art turf field is just one of several new features. There’s a new rubber track, grandstands and press box (wireless internet for yours truly?). The new facility will soon be joined by another spectacular venue — an all-purpose gym that will host countless tournaments in basketball, volleyball and wrestling. Should be a fun night, but there’s still a question that needs to be answered: after who will the stadium be named after? Garrison Field has a ring to it, and all you’d need to complement the name would be a brigade of snare drummers.
