ENTERPRISE, Ala. (AP) - The south Alabama town of Enterprise has taken another step on it's long road to recovery from a March 1, 2007 tornado that destroyed Enterprise High School and killed eight students.
The Enterprise Wildcats played their first game Friday night in the school's new stadium and defeated Montgomery's Sidney Lanier High School 49-21.
The game came just days after students and teachers had moved into the state-of-the-art new high school that replaced the one destroyed by the tornado.
The 8,000 seat stadium was filled for the first game. Former and current Enterprise students and town residents told The Dothan Eagle the new stadium was a sign of how the city has rebounded from the tragedy.
