Announcing the Starting Lineup

My Students

Our school's student-athletes are enthusiastic about soccer, softball, baseball, basketball, golf, skiing, and volleyball. Sports allow our students to enjoy a time to come together with their friends, family, and community in our small, rural town.

We have great students and they achieve many successes in academics and sports.

Since we live in a rural blue-collar town, our students love to be able to shine playing sports. Our school is a great place for them to learn team building skills and the importance of working together.

My Project

This sound system will primarily be used for outdoor sporting events. We will use this to announce starting lineups, for warm-up music prior to the game and the playing of the National Anthem. We currently do not have a system that is capable of projecting the sound across the soccer field nor do we have a portable one that can service of baseball and softball fields.

Living in a small, rural community our fields are not only used our students to play sports, but it gives our community the opportunity to come together and support our students.

The sound system will also allow our community members to be apart of our sporting events.
