St. Anne-Pacelli’s Athletic Field Turf Installation Begins
THE FIELD, BLEACHERS RESTROOMS AND LIGHTS WILL BE UPDATED AT THE FOOTBALL/BASEBALL FIELD
The Pacelli Vikings football and baseball field project is underway, and the new turf is high quality. NFL teams from across the country play on this type of field, and the same company installed the turf for the Atlanta Falcons. Once the field is ready, they’ll work on restrooms, bleachers and changing the stadium lights.
St. Anne Pacelli Athletic Director Corry Black said the field will be ready by August 10, when school is back in session. When making decisions to update the field, students’ safety was always the priority.
“It’s going to lower the maintenance on it, and just come out here and play,” said Black. “Usually if it rains here, we have to cancel practice. We have to shut-down games. Now we’ll be able to go out there and just play.”
