Turf Field, New Track Coming to Dos Pueblos’ Scott O’Leary Stadium

Football team will play 3 home games at San Marcos before field profect is completed

Dos Pueblos will be getting a turf field and a new track at Scott O'Leary Stadium.

Athletic Director Dan Feldhaus confirmed the information released by the DP football team on Twitter late Friday.

"I think we are on schedule to start the project shortly after graduation," Feldhaus told Noozhawk. "We're planning on using San Marcos for our first three home football games." 

The Chargers open with home games against Foothill High of Orange County on Aug. 17 and Oxnard-Pacifica on Aug. 25. They play at Ventura on Aug. 31 and return to San Marcos for a Sept. 8 home game against Buena. Those are now non-league games as Ventura and Buena were moved into the Pacific View League.

After playing at Righetti on Sept. 21, the Chargers are expecting to make their debut on the new home turf on Sept. 28 in their Channel League opener against Cabrillo.

Cabrillo, Lompoc and Santa Ynez join the Channel League in the fall.

The following week, DP will host Lompoc for Homecoming on Oct. 5.

The Chargers play road games at San Marcos on Oct. 12 and Santa Ynez on Oct. 18 and close out the regular season at home against Santa Barbara.

Feldhaus said the field and track upgrades are being funded through a bond measure and a fundraising effort.

It's a dream come true for DP Athletics.

"We are excited for sure," said Feldhaus.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
