Calexico’s Willis Ward Field turns 60



After the Willis Ward Field ceremony, Bulldogs stand and pledge allegiance during the performance of the National Anthem.

CALEXICO – Calexico High School’s Varsity football inaugurated the 60th Anniversary of Ward Field with a 41-28 victory over Palo Verde to mark the Bulldogs’ first league win of the season. The original construction of Ward Field was in 1957. Workers recently completed the modernization phase and celebrated the addition of a new all-weather track, new grandstand, and expanded home and away bleacher seating.

The Bulldogs will travel to Brawley October 20 to tango with the Wildcats in an IVL mid-season playoff-defining game.
