Sports Turf Company to Renovate Lowndes High School’s Martin Stadium
Sports Turf Company, a specialty sports construction and surfacing company, is proud to announce it has been awarded the Martin Stadium artificial turf renovation at Lowndes High School. The Vikings' field renovation is the third project that Lowndes County Schools has awarded to Sports Turf Company.
“We’re excited to continue working with Sports Turf Company as we improve our athletic facilities in a variety of sports,” Lowndes County Schools Executive Director of Facilities and Operations Jeff Hill said. “Sports Turf has provided outstanding durable and high-performing athletic surfaces for our athletes to excel, and we can’t wait to experience the enhancements to Martin Stadium.”
In late 2021 and early 2022, Sports Turf Company completed the artificial turf renovation of Lowndes High School’s baseball and softball fields. The artificial turf indoor facility is also under construction by Sports Turf.
“We are honored to continue our work at Lowndes High School to benefit its student athletes,” Sports Turf Company President Todd Wiggins said. “The Vikings’ staff is committed to giving their athletes the best facilities, and we’re grateful to be a part of this project.”
Sports Turf Company will renovate Martin Stadium’s existing artificial turf field into a system that surpasses other systems in terms of safety, durability and performance. The new surface will feature AstroTurf’s RootZone 3D Blend HD turf system, Brock Powerbase YSR shock pad and organic BrockFILL infill. AstroTurf’s RootZone 3D Blend 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 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.
Sports Turf specializes in the construction and installation of sports 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. The company continues evolving to provide higher-performing, safer and more durable athletic facilities for its clients.
