Sports Turf Company to Complete Athletic Facility Renovations at Four Richmond County High Schools

Sports Turf Company, a specialty sports construction and surfacing company, is proud to announce it has been awarded the artificial turf field and track renovation projects for four Richmond County High Schools. The renovation of all four stadiums will take place later this year.

The four Richmond County projects include:

  • Butler High School
  • Cross Creek High School
  • Lucy C. Laney High School
  • Westside High School

Sports Turf Company will renovate all four high schools’ existing natural grass fields to artificial turf systems that surpasses other systems in terms of safety, durability, and performance. The artificial turf system features AstroTurf’s RootZone 3D Blend HD turf system, Brock Powerbase YSR shock pad, and the organic infill, BrockFILL. AstroTurf’s RootZone 3D Blend 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 organic infills and is sustainably grown and harvested in Georgia.

“We are honored that after extensive research the Richmond County School System has chosen Sports Turf Company to renovate all four of their high school fields and tracks,” said Sports Turf Company President Todd Wiggins. “We’re excited for Richmond County to experience the difference advanced technology can make in athletic surfaces for their facilities. Playability, durability, and performance will be drastically improved with the products installed.

In addition to the field renovations, the existing track surfaces will be updated with Rekortan Full Pour Track System.

Sports Turf specializes in the construction and installation of sport surfaces, including natural grass and artificial turf fields, tennis courts, and track surfaces. In addition, Sports Turf Company serves as a consultant and owners’ advocate through the entire process of selecting the best facility solutions and surfaces to meet owners’ specific needs.
