Another milestone in
Pacifica's sports history will me made Friday night when the
Terra Nova Tigers open the 2008 football season playing in a
state-of-the art facility.
Thanks to a $135 million initiative bond passed by the local
community two years ago the football field and track was
completely restructured over the summer.
The public is invited to be a part of this historical game.
A ribbon-cutting ceremony will be held at 6:40 p.m. Terra
Nova High School officials will showcase the newly installed
synthetic football field and track. The new bleachers will
accommodate 1,800 fans.
A Terra Nova-hosted reception, coordinated by the school's
Associated Student Body class, will be held at 6 p.m. Guests
include former Terra Nova Booster Club members and Jefferson
Union High School officials. The varsity Tigers will host
Burlingame in a 7 p.m. kickoff. Earlier in the day, the
Tigers' sophomore team will entertain Burlingame in a 4 p.m.
affair. The public is also invited to attend that game.
Admission to the night game will be $6 for adults and $5 for
students and senior citizens. A Terra Nova Booster pass is
also available for purchasing. Price of a booster pass
begins at $50. Parking in the student parking lot is
available for $3. The Boosters' snack shack will provide a
wide variety of food and drinks.
The varsity Tigers will play five more home games at Tiger
Stadium. Each game is tied to a special event: Sept. 12
Olympic Club Night; Sept. 25 Alumni Night; Oct. 10
Homecoming; Oct. 24 Band Night and Nov. 17 Senior Night.
