Bullhead City – Mohave Accelerated Learning Center (MALC) cut the ribbon Tuesday on
Phase I of their new combo athletic field. Representatives from local Chamber of Commerce
businesses and the community were on hand for a ribbon cutting ceremony prior to the school’s
first home softball game at the facility, which is located at the school’s main campus on
Construction began over a year ago on the project, which features a softball diamond, complete
with dugouts and temporary bleachers, along with a football and soccer field. The initial fill and
grading work was donated by Tejera Construction. They were followed by crews from Burright
Construction, which donated time and equipment to complete all of the fieldwork. Additional
manpower and funding from across the community brought the first phase to completion.
Notable supporters included Eagle Fence, McCormick Construction, S&S Concrete, L&D
Trucking, EPCOR Water, Mehdi Azarmi (Fairway Construction), and Chip Cherial.
Superintendent Case Mulligan had nothing but praise for the group effort. “We couldn’t have
taken on a project this size alone,” he said. “Our students and faculty recognize and appreciate
the overwhelming support we’ve received from the community.” He noted that, together, these
companies and individuals invested over $200,000 into the effort.
Prior to construction of the fields, the Mohave Accelerated teams played their home games on
city fields. Jeremy Klingensmith, the school’s Athletic Director, explained, “These new facilities
really let us take our sports program to the next level. Our student athletes have always been
competitive and deserve to play on their own fields.” He noted that the high school football team
already has one state championship and the softball program has three state titles to their name.
MALC has already begun moving forward on Phase II of the project, which will include field
lighting, paved parking, a scoreboard, and permanent bleachers.
