Sports Turf Company to Renovate Carrollton High School’s Grisham Stadium and Maddox-Musselwhite Track
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 for Carrollton High School’s Grisham Stadium and Maddox-Musselwhite Track. The field renovation will take place this winter, while the track renovation will begin at the conclusion of the track season.
“The Trojan Nation is excited to work with a company that places great importance on safety and performance to take Grisham Stadium and Musselwhite Track to an unprecedented level,” Carrollton City Schools Assistant Superintendent Craig George said. “Previously, Sports Turf Company has done tremendous work for our facilities and facilities in the surrounding communities. We are honored to have a West Georgia-based contractor with their level of expertise and technology provide the best for our athletic programs.”
Sports Turf Company will renovate Grisham Stadium’s existing artificial turf field into a system with the top safety, durability and performance. The artificial turf system features Astro Turf’s 3D Decade System, Brock Powerbase YSR shock pad and organic BrockFILL infill. AstroTurf’s Decade system is a performance artificial turf that combines slit film and monofilament fibers, alongside an industry-leading 10-year warranty. The Brock Powerbase 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.
“It’s always an honor as a company to renovate a facility in your own backyard,” Sports Turf Company President Todd Wiggins said. “We also want to ensure that Carrollton High School student-athletes continue to receive the best and latest technology to propel their athletic programs forward, and we’re humbled to be a part of that.”
In addition to the field renovation, the existing eight-lane running track surface at Grisham Stadium and Maddox-Musselwhite Track will be removed and resurfaced with Rekortan M synthetic surface. Rekortan M is a World Athletics-certified, impermeable system featuring two distinct layers. This system delivers force reduction, ensures stability for predictable footing and is sealed to protect against moisture intrusion.
