Mt. Pleasant, SC, May 11, 2018 --(PR.com
)-- Mississippi State University broke ground this week on its new Sprinturf synthetic turf field. It will provide a reliable rehearsal space for the university’s Famous Maroon Marching Band.
In 2007, MSU renovated the Famous Maroon Band’s practice facility and installed an ordinary grass field. Drainage issues and persistent rain made the grass surface unusable, forcing the marching band to find other practice areas. MSU decided to do for its marching band what many other colleges and universities already have done for their athletic teams — upgrade to a Sprinturf synthetic field, which allows practice even in wet conditions.
“The practice field is our classroom during the marching season,” said Elva Kaye Lance, Director of the Famous Maroon Band. “Sprinturf’s synthetic turf will allow us to rehearse, regardless of the weather situations that come our way.”
Colleges, universities, and high schools increasingly are taking advantage of the benefits Sprinturf synthetic turf can provide to their students, including unlimited usage, reduced maintenance, and enhanced aesthetics.
