Sports Turf Company, a specialty sports construction and surfacing company, is proud to announce it has been awarded the stadium field renovation at Putnam County High School in Eatonton, Ga. The project includes the renovation of the War Eagles’ existing natural grass football stadium to artificial turf prior to the 2021-2022 school year.
“The renovation of our football stadium has been highly anticipated by our coaches, athletes and community for a long time,” said Putnam County Schools Athletic Director Paul Stokes. “We’re excited to have an industry leader like Sports Turf Company provide us with a durable, high-performing, and safer artificial turf system for our stadium to really propel our athletic programs forward.”
Sports Turf Company will renovate the War Eagles’ existing natural grass field to an artificial turf system focused on safety, enhanced performance, and improved footing. The artificial turf system features AstroTurf’s RootZone 3D3 turf system, Brock YSR shock pad, and the organic infill, BrockFILL. AstroTurf’s RootZone 3D3 turf system is a performance artificial turf system that combines slit film and monofilament fibers with a RootZone layer of texturized fibers for optimum durability and better shock absorbency. The Brock YSR shock pad and BrockFILL are specifically engineered to optimize safety for athletes during impacts to the surface. BrockFILL is the latest in alternative infills and is sustainably grown and harvested in Georgia.
“We are thrilled that Putnam County Schools entrusted Sports Turf Company to perform their stadium field renovation,” said Sports Turf Company President Todd Wiggins. “The AstroTurf RootZone 3D3 turf system, coupled with Brock shock pad technology and BrockFILL, provide a system focused on athlete safety in terms of impacts to the surface, reduced lower extremity injuries, and decreased field temperatures.”
