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.

SIOUX FALLS — With a tie to agriculture, the University of Sioux Falls has partnered with synthetic turf pioneer AstroTurf to install a visually stunning grass-like surface at Bob Young Field located at the University of Sioux Falls Sports Complex (69th and Cliff). The turf will be manufactured from a soy-based synthetic grass.
“At a time when we needed to upgrade our turf, AstroTurf stepped up as a partner and worked with us to make this project come together,” said USF Director of Athletics Josh Snyder. “It was important for us to have the connection to agriculture due to our relationship with farmers such as the late Ron Eiesland,” he said.
Replacement of the turf at USF Stadium will begin on Wednesday, May 13. The new turf should be in place in approximately six weeks which is well in advance of the start of football season against U-Mary on Saturday, Sept. 5.
