Seymour High School’s Lady Wildcats to get new $265,000 softball field

SEYMOUR >> Seymour High School’s winning Lady Wildcats softball team (22-5) will score a new field, dugout, lights and more, thanks to a state grant.

State Rep. Theresa Conroy, D-Seymour, announced Tuesday that the state Bond Commission approved a $265,000 grant to the town that will cover costs associated with building a brand new softball field, installation of lights, dugouts, a press box and replacement of the existing non-handicapped-accessible bleachers.

“This funding is about building a new field and honoring the winning tradition of Seymour softball,” Conroy said. “Our community supports this program from Little League through high school.”

Once the new softball complex is complete at the high school, it will be used not only by the SHS softball team, but the George J. Hummel Little League and Seymour Tradition travel teams, as well.
