Taylorville High School Purple and Gold game last Friday raises thousands for the football program.
Athletic Director Jason Hadley says the school took donations at the gate in lieu of admission. Hadley called last Friday night’s event a major success with over 600 people in attendance over the course of the night.
Over the summer, the school district approved plans for a Fine Arts and Sports Complex. Hadley calls this a big win for all parties, but he’s really excited for the impact the Sports Complex will have on the Taylorville High School sports programs.
Obviously, everyone is paying attention to football with Taylorville’s first game tonight at Mt. Vernon.
Hadley says golf has been underway for weeks now. THS is in the midst of starting its volleyball, and girl’s tennis seasons. Boy’s soccer and cross country is already underway.
