"We're excited and thrilled that Measure S passed," Doll said. "It's good for our school, our students and our community."
Bleachers and lights might give the Falcons a home field advantage for the football season, said CV boys athletic director David Mendoza. CV, Glendale and Hoover each play home games at Glendale High's Moyse Field.
"The opportunity to have a home field and the community to be able to come to a home [football] game because we have bleachers, it would be a tremendous home-field advantage," Mendoza said. "It would be tremendous for the community and the kids. The community would love nothing more than to play football games on our home field. It is a beautiful field with a beautiful backdrop. It's just missing bleachers to make it a great place."
The CV water polo and swimming programs might also have an advantage with an expanded pool. The programs might also save money.
For water polo playoff matches, the Falcons rent Pasadena City College's pool, which meets CIF standards. CV boys' water polo Coach Jan Sakonju said the Falcons pay approximately $350 to rent the pool and about $300 for buses.
"One of the reasons we play at PCC against our opponents during the regular season is that there is not a shock of playing in a larger pool in the playoffs," Sakonju said. "For years and years, we would go to playoffs, and you had to learn to make the adjustment to not playing at CV. The pool is too short, too shallow and too narrow. It's an illegal pool for all three reasons."
