New stadium, fields of green

Eells Stadium made its debut with the ninth annual Powderpuff football game against Deer Valley High in Antioch. The unveiling of the premiere athletic facility is the first completed phase of a school-wide moderation project funded by 2012's $56.5 million Measure B Bond.
