Citrus High thanks Black Diamond crew
Editor: The athletic department of Citrus High School extends our sincere thanks to Stan Olsen of Black Diamond Ranch, course superintendent Laurie Frutchey and their staff, Lisa Swing, Rick Brown, Teresa Neel, Steve Vermilyea and Stacy Daigneau.
These generous people donated two days of labor, aerating, verticutting, mowing, fertilizing and applying insecticides and weed killers to help prepare our football field for the upcoming season.
In addition to providing the equipment and labor necessary for this job, the crew trained our maintenance staff so we can keep up their good work throughout the year. When they saw that our reel mower needed service, they loaded it on their truck and took it to their shop to be sharpened and conditioned.
What a terrific example of community support for our kids. We are deeply appreciative of Black Diamond's efforts, and we know the Hurricane fans will really see a big difference in our football next fall.
Many thanks, Black Diamond!
