After 12 years of hard play, the field at Bakersfield College’s Memorial Stadium is in desperate need of a makeover. With the funding struggles Bakersfield College has experienced in recent years, covering the almost-$150,000 cost to replace the field was not in the plans. Enter the members of the Renegade Helmet Club, who sought financial support and donations to make the field renovation possible.
Memorial Stadium was the first structure completed on Bakersfield College’s Panorama Campus in the mid-1950s. Since then, the stadium has seen numerous championship battles, Potato Bowl games, track and field records, graduations, and more. The field had not been repaired and replaced for over 12 years – resulting in worn out spots and an uneven surface less-than-ideal for Bakersfield College’s two sports teams which rely heavily on a quality competition surface to achieve athletics excellence.
