Belle Vernon, PA– The new AstroTurf field at Belle Vernon Area High School will be unmistakable. The field will be gold.
The existing AstroPlay surface by AstroTurf was originally installed in 2001. Its 14 year lifespan is due to a nylon RootZone® and excellent maintenance on the part of the school district. This time around, Belle Vernon Area has decided to amp up their field selection for the Leopards.
“Our field lasted nearly twice as long as the original warranty, so the decision to buy from AstroTurf again was an easy one. But this time, we really wanted to think outside the box and to show our school pride. The Board of School Directors and I are so very proud of our District, we wanted to honor the Leopard tradition with a color that stands out,” said Superintendent Dr. John Wilkinson.

Novi High School has always been an attractive place for hosting athletic events.
And with another series of 2015 projects already set into motion, this latest makeover puts the district far ahead of the curve.
“We hosted 19 different Michigan High School Athletic Association sports tournament,” Novi athletic director Brian Gordon said. “We host a lot of stuff and they come here for a reason, but we’re also meeting the needs of our teams and the community.”
After a new $800,000 synthetic football stadium turf field was installed last year, work is underway on several other athletic-related projects in the district as a result of a $70.9 million bond proposal that was overwhelming passed in May 2014 by Novi Community School District voters.
