As part of his Eagle Scout project, Avon Grove High School junior Nate Hammond received approval from the London Grove Township Board of Supervisors last week, for his idea to install a 12-foot-high practice rebound wall on the school's sports complex, that, once constructed, will be used by several Avon Grove sports teams.
Hammond, a junior at the high school and a member of its lacrosse team, said that the wall – which will have a three-foot-wide base – would help prevent damage to the middle school gym, which is currently being used for practice. The project, estimated at $6,000, will be paid for by several school-based and local organizations, and is slated to be constructed between the school's varsity baseball field and its practice fields. It received a seal of approval by engineer Robert T. MacIntosh, and its construction is currently out for bidding.
Hammond is pictured with his father, Brian.
