Golf club superintendent helps with school field

July 3, 2012

If you seed it, they will come.

New grass grows on an L-shaped strip of land surrounding the southwest end of Snoqualmie’s Cascade View Elementary School, and so does the hope of a community to see children play baseball and soccer on it next fall.

Scott Phelps, a Cascade View parent and the superintendent at The Golf Club at Newcastle, offered a helping hand to help make the dream of the field a reality.

The field is owned by the Snoqualmie Valley School District and Little League organizations have been helping out with the work, Phelps said.

A onetime rough spot near Cascade View Elementary School in Snoqualmie is becoming a real ball field thanks to people like The Golf Club at Newcastle Superintendent Scott Phelps.

“We want to help create some field space for them and they are helping finance the remodel work out there,” he said.

Ray Wilson, principal of Cascade View Elementary School, sees the little blades of grass covering the once-bumpy, weedy dirt and smiles.

“It’s the best I’ve seen this field since I’ve been here,” Wilson said, who has been the principal of Cascade View for three years.
