Mesquite, TX, April 15, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- FieldTurf is proud to announce the upcoming installation of FieldTurf Revolution at Memorial Stadium, which is part of the Mesquite Independent School District. MISD is composed of 5 high schools and 13 middle schools, and school officials estimate over 4,800 students participate in athletic programs. The installation replaces their old FieldTurf surface, and Athletic Director Steve Bragg looks forward to providing the students with yet another world-class facility – a system that has been designed to be the very best in the industry.
“Mesquite ISD values our relationship with FieldTurf. Our two stadiums are heavily used for football, soccer, marching band competitions, and ROTC drill competitions,” said Athletic Director Steve Bragg. “Due to the heavy use of our stadium surfaces, we must have a durable product. As an Athletic Director, I like knowing that FieldTurf has proven to be an industry leader in the research and development of turf surfaces. Their customer service to our school district has been second to none as well.”
FieldTurf’s impressive fiber technology has once again revolutionized the industry. The Revolution fiber is the result of innovative science, engineering and technology that will provide FieldTurf customers with a soft, strong monofilament fiber with extraordinary durability and longevity. Memorial Stadium was installed in 2005 and to this day in great shape despite high usage rates. School officials were very pleased with the new Revolution surface at Hanby Stadium and felt this was the best alternative to go with Revolution at Memorial as well.
Mesquite joins fellow school districts such as Abilene ISD, St. Thomas High School, and Lake Travis ISD to have all installed FieldTurf. At the University level, FieldTurf has also installed surfaces at the University of Texas, Texas Tech and Texas A&M. FieldTurf continues to leave its mark in the state and looks forward to continuing its relationship with these growing sports programs that are spread out among the region.
