IF YOU GO
High school football fans, keep these points in mind regarding the postseason showdown between Lake Travis and Westlake on Friday night:
- Don’t think you’ll be able to buy a ticket Friday night at Reeves Athletic Complex. Each school was allotted 6,000 tickets, and sales have been brisk, meaning it’s unlikely that either school will be returning unsold tickets that can be peddled to the general public.
“Based on what both Westlake and Lake Travis officials are saying about ticket sales, I don’t anticipate them giving us any tickets back,” said Dwayne Weirich, the athletics director for the Round Rock school district, which owns and operates Reeves Athletic Complex.
- The stadium has 2,500 available parking spots — at a cost of $5 per car — but getting into the parking lot could cost could you much more in terms of time and mental energy. Located at 10211 W. Parmer Lane, Reeves Athletic Complex has a single entry point for the public into its parking lot, which causes traffic to gridlock in advance of high-profile games.
Weirich encourages fans to use the free shuttles that will run from nearby Gupton Stadium in Cedar Park. Part of the Leander school district, Gupton Stadium, 200 Gupton Way Drive, is three miles from Reeves Athletic Complex.
The shuttles will begin running at 5:30 p.m. and will operate throughout the game, Weirich said. The gates to the stadium will open at 6, and kickoff is scheduled for 7:30.
- If you can’t land a ticket, grab a comfy seat on your couch. The game will be televised locally on KBVO.
