After an unusually rainy and muddy 2020 football season the Jena High School football field was in need of major repair. Last week, around 75 tons of sand was placed on the field to fill in holes left from last season to level it back out and help with conditions for this season. JHS Athletic Director Jay Roark said the work is being paid for through football revenue but anyone wishing to assist monetarily would be welcomed. The coach said the next step is to fertilize the field and keep it watered through the summer to allow major growth to occur. He also said that due to the repair work, the field is closed to the public during the summer months.
