We are excited to announce the beginning of a major capitol campaign effort to raise funding for the new University High School Sports Complex. A committee has been formed and is working in conjunction with and at the direction of the University High School administration as well as Monongalia County Superintendent and Monongalia County Board of Education.
We are also excited to name the fields in honor of Jedd Gyorko, a UHS baseball alum, former West Virginia University starting shortstop. Winner of the Brooks Wallace Award and retired Major League Baseball player. Mr. Gyorko will be working closely with the committee to assist in reaching the campaign goal.
“Having my Alma Mater’s baseball fields named after me is truly an honor. I look forward to assisting with this project and soon watching UHS host games on their home field” - Jedd Gyorko
The UHS Sports Complex featuring the Jedd Gyorko fields will be located to the right of the school on the hill referred to as the “Dotson Tipple’ site.
This project will be the centerpiece of UHS and the UHS community for many years to come. The beautiful complex will include WVSSAC compliant, lighted baseball/softball fields and tennis courts with concessions, restrooms, and bandstands.
