Buena High School holds ribbon cutting ceremony for new running track

Sierra Vista Unified School District governing board members and distinguished guests from the Sierra Vista community participate in the official ribbon cutting ceremony for Buena High School’s new track May 1.

Buena High School, or BHS, hosted a ribbon cutting ceremony May 1 to celebrate the unveiling of its new running track at Loveless Stadium.

Before the official ribbon-cutting took place, a short program highlighted the past, present and future of the BHS track and field program. Guest speakers included Kevin Carolan, Sierra Vista Herald sports reporter; Kriss Hagerl, Sierra Vista Unified School District superintendent; and Roger Bristow, BHS track and field coach.

Carolan emphasized BHS Boys’ and Girls’ Track and Field as one of the school’s most successful athletic programs. The guest speaker gave the examples of former graduates in the program who went on to become accomplished athletes, such as Danny Lopez, 1992 Olympian steeplechase competitor, and Junior Olympians Ashley Weber and Jeremy Tuttle. The program has also produced multiple athletes breaking school records and winning state titles.

“My competitive blood is boiling,” Bristow said, regarding Carolan’s speech over the program’s legacy. “Those [records] are extremely high expectations … and I want our athletes to break those records and go beyond being recognized state-wide to be recognized nationally.”

The coach added that he hopes the new track can be preserved for years to come and wants the involvement of parents and community members to keep enhancing the facility grounds so that one day the school will extend beyond hosting its weekly track meets to invitationals. Bristow concluded that the surface should be preserved for everyone to enjoy, not just the athletes.

Chief Warrant Officer Josh Marner, Network Enterprise Technology Command, and daughter Bailey, 14, take a stroll around Buena High School’s new running track May 1 after its ribbon cutting ceremony. Officiating personnel encouraged all attendees to take a lap around the unveiled surface after the event.

“This day has been long and coming,” Hagerl said. “Many have dedicated countless hours of planning, preparing and I must say praying for the construction of our beautiful new track, a facility that our students, coaches, teachers, parents and the community can be proud of.”

After the remarks, members of the Sierra Vista Unified School District governing board and other distinguished guests made their way on to the track for the official ribbon cutting ceremony. School board members also received a framed photo of the new track for the office as a token of appreciation toward their dedication of the project.

The ceremony concluded with an invitation for all attendees to take their first lap around the new surface.
