Woolsey Stadium receives its name from George B. Woolsey. Woolsey was the groundskeeper from 1950-1967. Stories are told that Mr. Woolsey required P.E. classes to pick up rocks and throw them over the hill to help clear the area to plant grass. The attention to detail and cleanliness of the stadium has stood the test of time and remain today. In 1979 King’s held a “jog-a-thon,” raising enough money to put the first all-weather track in the area. Fast forward to 2007, a synthetic surface replaced the grass, making Woolsey Stadium one of the top five venues to watch a game in Washington State, according to the Seattle Times.
Woolsey Stadium is home to our football, soccer, cross country, and track teams. Under the lights of Woolsey Stadium, you can experience both our Junior High and High School football and soccer teams taking the field. You can also watch our cross country and track teams race their opponents. In addition to sporting events at Woolsey Stadium, King’s Community events like our Convocation and Carnival also occur at the stadium. Thanks to our wonderful donors, Woolsey Stadium received a brand-new track and field this year.
