Johnson-O’Brien Stadium was selected by WIAA officials based on its reputation as one of the best high school baseball venues in the Pacific Northwest and for the staff’s experience hosting quality tournaments. New stadium grandstands were installed in the fall of 2021, and the infield was redone in August 2022 with laser leveling, new soil, a new pitching mound and a redone home plate area.
