Villanova Hopes to Continue Their Winning Ways on AstroTurf

Villanova, PA – When you mention athletic programs that are riding high, you have to include Villanova University in the conversation. Fresh off of a dynamic season in which their basketball team won the NCAA National Championship, great things are continuing to happen for the athletic program.  The Wildcat football team, 2-0 and ranked 10th nationally in the FCS, will christen their new AstroTurf field this Saturday’s against Towson University.

Success usually breeds success and that has proven to be true for Villanova. In recent years, the athletic facilities have received many upgrades and the evidence of that can be seen all across campus. One major upgrade occurred recently with renovations at Villanova Stadium as Goodreau Field was replaced with a premium AstroTurf playing surface.

The new turf system is one of the industry’s best and was completed this summer just before the start of football season. The stadium now features AstroTurf’s RootZone 3D3 Blend turf system. This premium product is AstroTurf’s most popular stadium turf due to its combination of long-lasting performance and game day good looks. The RootZone 3D3 Blend integrates three unique fibers – the slit film, monofilament, and patented RootZone – into one cohesive system. Combined with a Brock Powerbase underlayment for ultimate shock absorbency, this field will deliver superior playability, safety, and durability.

“This is an exciting time for Villanova and we feel that the upgrades to our facilities are setting us up for success well into the future” said Mark Jackson, Villanova Athletic Director. “When it came time to upgrade our stadium field, we looked for the best possible turf system available and AstroTurf delivered on everything we were wanting in a playing surface.”  

Dan Driscoll, AstroTurf Regional Sales Manager, took an extra special interest during the sales process and installation of this field. As a former Wildcat linebacker and member of the Villanova Hall of Fame, Dan took great pride in being able to deliver on every AstroTurf promise. He said, “Villanova holds a special place in my heart and it was very important to me to be able to provide the University and its student-athletes with the best playing surface possible. This field is not only beautiful but will live up to the performance and safety standards that are so very important to AstroTurf and to Villanova.”

Villanova competes in the Colonial Athletic Association for football. The Wildcats play an eleven game schedule in 2018 with five games being hosted at Villanova Stadium.

Ringgold High School is a Synthetic Turf Pioneer Once Again

Monongahela, PA – Joe Montana Stadium is the home of the Ringgold Rams and now it is also the home of AstroTurf’s new Trionic fiber. Trionic is AstroTurf’s new wonder-fiber that is the talk of the synthetic turf industry.

Ringgold High School has a long history of leading the way when it comes to choosing groundbreaking products. Ringgold was the first football installation of a long pile infilled turf system in the United States when they installed their first synthetic field back in the summer of 1997. Now, proving again that they are ahead of the curve, the Rams are one of the first owners of the most technologically advanced artificial turf system on the market. When the decision was made to modernize their field, they chose AstroTurf’s RootZone 3D3 with Trionic.

The turf itself is in a class of its own. AstroTurf’s Trionic Fiber is a super-fiber that reinforces player-friendly polyethylene fibers with ultra-durable nylon polymers in a feat of chemical engineering never achieved before in the turf industry. The 3D3 designation means the field also has AstroTurf’s RootZone, a sub-layer of crimped fibers that stabilizes the infill and increases shock absorbency. The turf has a 52-ounce face weight, meaning it has very dense stitching. All of these factors combine to make a synthetic turf that is stronger, safer, better and more resilient.

Ringgold High School joins Kansas State University, Lock Haven University, Delaware State, and others as early adopters of the Trionic fiber. Ringgold will benefit as this fiber delivers a massive improvement in resistance to wear. This molecular fusion of nylon and polyethylene means that the fiber is better, stronger and lasts longer.  

Ringgold High School is not only getting a field that is unmatched for durability but one that is also aesthetically appealing. The alternating green panels with an oversized logo and end zones of Navy and Vegas Gold make for a bright and beautiful field.

The Rams have a lot to be excited about as they kick off their football season this fall. To go along with their new AstroTurf field, they will also have a new coach at the helm. Legendary coach, Mike Zmijanac, will lead Ringgold after winning six WPIAL championship and one PIAA championship at Aliquippa. Ringgold High School will debut its new field on September 7th when Indiana High School visits.
