Alto seeing progress with repairs on athletic facilities

ALTO, Texas (KTRE) - Simple basketball games brought joy and a packed house to Alto ISD Tuesday night.

The matchup between the Yellowjackets and Mount Enterprise Wildcats was not one of the premier matchups of the night but it was a home game and that is something Alto has not seen in months.

Their gym took on significant damage from last spring’s tornadoes. The school district is still working hard to get all of their facilities ready.

“It brings excitement back into the athletic department,” Alto Athletic Director Ricky Meeks said. “It is nice to feel that. the rebuilding is nice to see for these kids.”

The district also finished major repairs to the softball field just in time for the season. The Lady Jackets will start practice on Friday. The baseball field repairs are continuing. Meeks said the field might not be completely finished by the time baseball starts practice at the end of the month but he does believe it will be done in time for the season.
