The Wally Sigmar Field project will include LED overhead lights, new fencing and a new artificial turf surface that will replace the former grass field, which was prone to sogginess that limited its availability.

“We’d play on it all fall and it would just turn into a mud bog. Then we’d spend 10 months getting it back into shape. Then it’d turn into a mud bog,” Skagit Valley College Athletic Director Steve Epperson said. “Things deteriorate over time.”
