A small section of turf on North Kitsap High School’s football field is in the process of being repaired after broken pipe flooded part of the field last week.
North Kitsap football coach Jeff Weible said the pipe, which runs near the 50-yard line and continues toward the baseball field, produced two to three inches of standing water last week. A 12-foot by 12-foot section of the field was cut out Tuesday and revealed a cracked coupling where two sections of pipe were joined.
Weible said the pipe fix and turf repairs should be finished by the time the football field is needed for use. North Kitsap hosts Bainbridge on Sept. 5 to open the season.
