The Juneau-Douglas High School Track and Field program and the JDHS Soccer program would like to thank city employee Jonathan Mollick and all of the other Parks and Recreation field maintenance employees who helped liberate the Adair-Kennedy Memorial Park track and field from a record late-season snowpack. As a result of their efforts, both student athlete groups were able to use the facility by the second week in April. Given how deep the snowpack was as late as March 30, this required an incredible effort on the part of the Parks and Recreation crew.

The two high school user groups would also like to thank the many volunteers who contributed more than 2,000 hours of time shoveling and removing snow alongside the efforts of the Parks and Recreation work crew. Without this great community effort, the teams would still be practicing indoors and the recently completed fourth annual Spring Fever Soccer Invitational - featuring teams from Colorado, Wyoming and Anchorage - would have been canceled.
JDHS team members, their parents and coaches remain grateful to all, for the successful effort, and we invite the community at large to attend upcoming home games and meets in support of these fine young adults.
