Erie County/Margaretta football stadium improvements

Margaretta High School in Castalia will play their first home football game of the season on Friday, no matter what.

An over half-million dollar improvement project including new bleachers, press box and sound system is all but finished.

Last November, a tornado touched down there; destroying the press box and heavily damaging bleachers and the track.

School officials hope to have Erie County sign off on the new bleachers, granting the district an occupancy permit.

If not, the school says they’ll still play at the Duck Pond, even if fans have to bring their own lawn chair.

The school had their home opener moved to Bellevue last month.
