Progress continues on Statesmen Park project
Even though sports are done for the school year thanks to the coronavirus outbreak, improvements to the athletic facilities at Lincoln Trail College continue to progress.

A little more than a year ago, the LTC Foundation donated 11 acres of land west of the baseball diamond to allow for the addition of two soccer fields to house the LTC women's team and the soon-to-debut men's team, as well as a softball diamond to bring the LTC softball team back to campus after utilizing the Robinson City Park as home for many years.

Statesmen Park - which is the name for the entire complex - broke ground last May and hit some snags along the way, which prevented soccer fields from being completed in time to play on during the fall season.

• COVID-19 causes cancellation, suspension of local sports
