The Baron Athletic Complex (BAC) has renewed and transformed Blue Ridge School's athletic facilities.
Comprised of nine important facilities to be constructed in two phases, the BAC will impact literally every student on campus - serving lacrosse, football, soccer, track, baseball and golf.
Phase One was completed in September 2015 and includes a new artificial turf playing field, a new six-lane competition track, as well as new parking and public areas. This facility has been built on the site of the original "rock pile" football field adjacent to Massey Gymnasium.
Ground breaking for Phase One was March 27th, 2015.
Phase Two includes a new golf practice facility, significant improvements to the baseball diamond, two new raised grass soccer fields, and a new outer campus entrance and gateway along Bacon Hollow Road.
The groundbreaking for these new facilities is scheduled for the 2015-2016 school year, with a projected completion date in the latter part of 2016.
As of November 1, 2015, more than $2.2M in commitments has been secured toward the $2.675M needed to complete both phases. A longtime partner of BRS has come forward with an incredibly generous challenge, matching every new gift 1:2 to help bring the BAC across the finish line in 2016.
