LOWELL -- Track athletes at Lowell High will return to school this fall with a brand new running track at Cawley Stadium, replacing the old track that has shown wear and tear after about 15 years of use.
The track will be paid for with $400,000 in city funds and $200,000 from the state. City and school officials joined with the city's legislative delegation Monday morning to announce and celebrate funding for the track.
"Everyone is so excited," said Phil Maia, the Lowell High track coach.
Installation of the new track is expected to take six to eight weeks.
