Rocklin, CA – The latest upgrade to the football stadium at Sierra College is definitely generating some buzz around campus. Homer “Buzz” Ostrom Stadium now features a cutting edge field from AstroTurf®, which was installed in March. It’s an impressive playing surface, and one whose character is bolstered by what’s been done below the surface.
The process of replacing Buzz Ostrom Stadium’s old artificial turf started underground. Valley Precision Grading, a certified AstroTurf distributor, began by remediating the underlayment with their specialized equipment. This process ensured proper drainage and level grading. That was followed by installation of a Brock Powerbase for maximum shock absorption. And finally the AstroTurf RootZone 3D3 Blend turf system was laid down. This is a high-end product that utilizes a specialized fiber blend for optimum performance, durability and game-day good looks. The signature touch for this customized playing surface at “The Buzz” is the use of green encapsulated rubber infill, which ensures a vibrant and clean surface over the life of the field.
“We couldn’t be happier with the new turf installation at Buzz Ostrom Stadium,” said Lucas Moosman, Athletic Director at Sierra College. “It’s not just a replacement field, it’s a high performance upgrade that will give our student-athletes a great place to play for years to come.”
With a combination of superior equipment and distinctive technique, VPG and AstroTurf are partnering to deliver unrivaled field replacement capabilities for Northern California. Some of their joint projects include the UC Berkley practice field and the revolutionary baseball field at Benedetti Diamond on the USF campus.
