The Pit at Minden High School is safe following the vote of the Webster Parish School Board Tuesday.

In a special meeting, board members voted in favor of proceeding with the plans to demolish the grandstands and rebuild as recommended by the District 6 Committee. Architect Perry Watson, with Yeager, Watson and Associates, Inc., says the grandstands will be rebuilt to 214 feet, one and a half feet above floodplain stage at 210 feet to specification and to meet building codes.

“The football field is above floodplain level, except for the corner it floods, which is a small southwest corner,” he said.



  1. Let’s do this right. This needs to be a solid structure but it also needs to be attractive. Don’t make it look like another erector set. I’ve always been surprised that the current stadium stood as long as it did. Underneath it looked like a collapse waiting to happen.
