A groundbreaking ceremony was held for multi-million dollar renovations to Lompoc High School's Huyck Stadium.

The nearly $4 million in renovations will include upgrading to an artificial turf, an all-weather, nine-lane track, community exercise zone, filtered water fountains and security improvements.

The stadium will also feature a donor brick walkway, including more than 200 bricks with donor names and concrete columns to recognize larger financial backers.

The last update to the stadium was done in 1964.

Lompoc High School Athletic Director Claudia Terrones said, "I'm really excited. It's been four years since they started talking about it. This is my 16th year at Lompoc High and there is a lot of history into this track, which I'm gonna miss, but we are super excited for the future of our student athletes."

Funding for the project is coming from more than 300 donors over the course of two years.

It's expected to be completed in May.
