School stadium[edit]

Hugh Mills Stadium is used by all four public high schools: the Albany High Indians, Dougherty High Trojans, Monroe High Tornadoes, and Westover High Patriots football and track teams. It is also the host of the girls' state track meet for all five GHSA classifications. It is dedicated to Hugh M. Mills, the Albany High principal from 1923-1925. The stadium is located near Albany High School at 601 North Van Buren Street.

Albany High is the only school in the Dougherty County School System to have an on-site football stadium; because of this, all the high schools in Dougherty County use Hugh Mills as a home field. To alleviate confusion during games between schools, signs are posted at each of the entrance gates to designate the home team. If three schools have home games on the same weekend, games are played on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday nights.

Alma mater[edit]

Our hearts beat true, red, white, and blue,
We boast and we are bold,
When honoring the school we love,
The memories we will hold.
As patriots we will stand high.
We'll shout and we'll proclaim,
Forever proving that we take pride in your name.
Our loyalty we pledge to thee, Dear School,we'll ever try,
To make you proud we were a part of you,
Westover High.
