CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas – Construction on the renovation of Incarnate Word Academy’s (IWA) Austin Street Athletic Complex is set to begin Monday, Oct. 8. The complex will receive a complete overhaul to provide student-athletes a state-of-the-art facility which will include an all-weather track, batting and golf cages, storage facility for equipment, turf soccer field, zones for track and field events, and new fencing.
The capital improvement cost of phase one is estimated to be approximately $950,000.
“This is an exciting time for Incarnate Word Academy,” IWA President Charles D. Imbergamo said. “Our student-athletes work very hard and we thankful those who are partnering with us to make this happen.”
Renovation of the Athletic Complex is phase one in our larger multi-year, $4.3 million enhancement project called the Enlighten, Inspire and Strengthen campaign. Phases two and three of the project include a new gymnasium for the middle school and an expansion to the elementary campus to include a comprehensive Montessori facility.
