    I have the two iron gates that were part of the brick pillar entrance to the track that were I believe were built as the senior class gift the the year Coach Ray McDonald passed away.

    One gate was damaged and instead of fixing it the town removed them and sent them off to scrap.

    They were rescued.

    If interested contact me.
