About DeSoto County High School Softball

DeSoto County High School Softball in Arcadia FL is a member of the FHSAA and competes in the Class 4A – Region R3 – District D11 conference. With 1,169 students, Desoto County HS provides 17 sports team opportunities for their student athletes. A culture of excellence exists for all students in the School district.

The DeSoto County High School athletic facilities sustained significant storm damage to their Softball, Baseball and Football venues from Hurricane Ian which necessitated replacement and upgrade of their lighting systems.

The school officials sought to replace their existing lighting with the most energy-efficient and sustainable lighting system available to reduce energy and maintenance costs while also providing a long-term lighting solution to meet their current and future needs. The installation schedule of DeSoto HS Softball and Baseball facility lighting was also an important challenge given the pending start of their interscholastic competitive seasons.
