Hillcrest High School getting closer to breaking ground on brand new Westmark Stadium
AMMON, Idaho (KIFI) - Donations from local businesses and the community continue to pour in for Westmark Stadium, the new stadium at Hillcrest High School set to be built this year.
Assistant Principal Tyler Mills said the school expects the groundbreaking to be around late April or early May, with completion expected to be in late August or early September, just in time for the 2023-24 school year.
