Seneca Athletic Complex
Multi Field Facility
Seneca School District hired Byrne & Jones through TIPS Cooperative Purchasing early in January of 2021. The project consisted of an 8 lane running track, a new baseball stadium, and a synthetic turf baseball field. The new athletic facilities solved many issues for the district. Seneca’s football field went on to win the 2022 Distinguished Single Field Award by the American Sports Builders Association.
Superintendent Dr. Brandon Eggleston said the impressive features sure to have virtually everyone in this Southwest Missouri town of about 2,500 residents swelling with pride about this project. “The track is an eight-lane stand-alone track. The new multi-purpose facility will have locker rooms, bathrooms, a storage area and a concession stand. The track will also be open for the public to use.” Eggleston went on saying, “Our previous baseball and softball fields were in a flood plain and flooded frequently. And with the new location, we do not have to worry about flooding. We did not even have a track to practice on, so that is significant for our student-athletes. We now have a complex that can host any size track meet and a baseball/softball field that will be a state-of-the-art facility. The complex will be a point of pride for our community. It is a place where our student-athletes can compete that is safe, high quality and reliable.”
