Social Circle Athletic Complex opens


Since 2002, Social Circle has been collecting money via a special tax to build their new Social Circle High School Athletic Complex, which was officially opened to the public on Monday at 7:30 p.m.

“This is the fruits of that money that the community and citizens have put in to build this. So we’re thrilled. It’s the first time we’ve had a track and tennis courts in Social Circle. We’ve had to have our track meets away, practice on the bus loop and we had to travel on the road to play tennis until this year,” Todd McGhee, superintendent of Social Circle City Schools, said.

Top to bottom: The banner of the new center next to the football field reads “Home of the Redskins.” Fans watched as different speakers spoke on the new complex and the benefits of the complex. The new football field, surrounded by a rubber track, has artificial turf and the Redskins logo in the middle of the field. Fans rushed the new field after the speakers were done to test out the new turf. Todd McGhee waits to cut the ribbon before the ceremonies start.
