Wisconsin Rapids Public Schools Awarded Legacy Grant
to Develop Community Quadplex Project
Wisconsin Rapids – Plans are being finalized to create an incredible 4-diamond baseball and softball complex on the campus of Lincoln High School. The project includes synthetic turf infields, natural turf outfields, a concession/restroom building, stadium-style seating, press boxes, and other infrastructure. Partner organizations include: Wisconsin Rapids Public Schools, Assumption Catholic Schools, Port Edwards Schools, American Legion Baseball Post 9, Wisconsin Rapids Youth Sports Association, Wisconsin Rapids Men’s Softball Association, Wisconsin Rapids Co-Ed / Women’s Softball Association, Wisconsin Rapids Area Sports Commission, and the City of Wisconsin Rapids.
More than 80% of the cost of the project is already funded, thanks to the Wisconsin Rapids Public Schools (WRPS) Board of Education voting to approve the acceptance of a generous $5,600,000 grant from the Legacy Foundation of Central Wisconsin. The organizations involved hope to create awareness and are seeking community support to raise the remaining funds needed. An exciting aspect of the Legacy Grant is the fact that the first $1,000,000 is a matching grant and any in-kind or monetary contributions made will be matched dollar-for-dollar!
Superintendent Craig Broeren is excited about the opportunity to expand and improve the athletic facilities on the Lincoln High School campus, stating, “The quadplex project is exciting for our community as these improvements will not only enhance opportunities for local youth and community organizations, but also provide a potential economic boost in our area as the quadplex draws in teams of all ages and spectators from other areas who would likely stay in our hotels, eat in local restaurants, and spend dollars at local retailers while here.”
