AstroTurf Press Releases
July 28, 2015
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.
CARMICHAEL, CALIFORNIA — When Hanson McClain Advisors Stadium at Jesuit High School needed a new field for its nationally-ranked sports teams, school officials wanted cutting-edge technology. AstroTurf, the leader in synthetic turf surfacing, was called in to address the Carmichael, California, school’s needs.
From consultations with the school, architects from Verde Design and field builder Valley Precision Grading learned Jesuit High School officials wanted to completely update the 45-year-old field and were seeking a novel approach to synthetic turf, with maximum utility for Jesuit’s nationally ranked sports teams.
“The Jesuit High School community wanted a field which could accommodate football and soccer,” said Fr. David Suwalsky, school president. “Installing turf rather than keeping grass would also allow a safer, year-round playing surface. Last year, there were 48 football games on the field; now, we can schedule football, soccer, rugby and lacrosse without concern for field conditions.”
