Northern Bedford County High School was in dire need of a new scoreboard for their soccer field that sits along Route 36 in Loysburg, PA. A brand-new scoreboard was generously donated by Hometown Bank to the NB Soccer Boosters. The Northern Bedford County School District would just have to find someone who could get it installed.
I&Y Construction was contacted by the NB Soccer Boosters. They asked for help in determining the needs for the removal of the existing scoreboard and the installation of the new scoreboard.
Ronald “Tink” Snider performed an on-site visit and determined that the old wooden pillars supporting the former board were structurally problematic and would not support the new scoreboard. New steel beams would have to be ordered.
Owners Matt Snyder and Ronald Snider both graduated from Northern Bedford in 1988. They generously agreed to donate their time, expertise, and the electrical and construction materials needed to get this scoreboard installed. The NBC Facilities department financed the purchase of the steel beams that would support the new scoreboard.
I&Y Construction removed the existing scoreboard, drilled new foundation holes, set the steel beams, and poured concrete foundations. When the foundations were cured, I&Y set the new scoreboard in place. I&Y Construction also re-worked the existing electrical components required to power up the new scoreboard.
The project was completed on March 16, 2022, and the scoreboard is up and operational ready for next soccer season.
I&Y Construction would also like to extend our congratulations to the 2021 NBC Girls Varsity team on their 16-3-1 record, making them the first team in Northern Bedford history to qualify for the state playoffs.
