New sports complex opens in Cutler-Orosi

The new Orosi High School sports complex is an amazing facility for the high school and community. The expanded baseball, football and soccer facilities will greatly support the athletic, emotional and social development of the Orosi High School students.

“TETER is so excited to be a part of another great project with Cutler Orosi Joint Unified School District. We are especially pleased that the community will have use of these facilities for community sports and that everyone can use the splash park and exercise track. This new facility is another step toward completing the district facility master plan and a huge step towards “Building a Better Valley”. – Robert Thornton, TETER Partner and Architect of Record

OROSI, Calif. (KFSN) — The Cutler-Orosi Joint Unified School District celebrated their new sports complex on Tuesday.

The complex is located next to Orosi High School and includes a splash pad, playground, and fields for football, soccer, softball, and baseball.

The project is six years in the making, and was funded in part by Measure E.

Tulare County Supervisor Eddie Valero says it will be a place where the community’s youth can build relationships with peers and practice sportsmanship.

“This sports complex reflects the improvement to community and the wherewithal by leaders who dreamed big and worked hard to give back to Cutler and Orosi,” he added.

There’s still more to come for the school district. A new auditorium, aquatic complex, and gymnasium are in the planning stages.
