Round Rock, TX, April 19, 2006 --(PR.com
)-- Both Tulane University and Louisiana State University have taken steps toward establishing a sense of normalcy after several grueling months of Katrina recovery. The two schools chose Sportexe synthetic turf systems to lead them into the 2006-07 football seasons and bring back what Louisiana lost during the tragedy.
“Katrina left about 3-5 feet of standing water in our athletic area. This of course prompted the university to replace the fields.” said Vince Granito, Associate Athlete Director for Tulane. “We were looking for two things when we started, first a quality product and second one that could be delivered in a timely manner so that we could start spring football practice. Sportexe kept its promise and delivered both.” Sportexe OmniGrass™ 41
was the natural choice for the Tulane multi-purpose fields. This state-of-the-art synthetic turf system is one of the safest synthetic fields on the market today.
A proven performer, OmniGrass possesses the ideal combination of firmness, durability and cushioning provides years of year-round use for a multitude of sports. These two fields will mainly be used for football, soccer, and track.
Louisiana State University was fortunate in that they did not suffer much hurricane damage at all. They did however want to improve their indoor football facility and decided to go with Sportexe to help them do that.
“After looking at a number of different companies, we decided that Sportexe was the way to go, “ said Eddie Nunez, Director of Game and Event Management for LSU. “Sportexe Momentum product provided consistent play, and got great test results from all of our players.” Momentum™
is designed to be dense, firm, fast — a superior surface that maximizes performance and player safety. With unsurpassed quality and durability, Momentum™ is the premier choice for all levels of sport, easily matching the demands of any and every sport time and again.
In addition to both of these schools, Sportexe will soon be replacing the severely damaged turf at the Louisiana Superdome with the hope of getting the stadium prepared for the upcoming Saints home opener in September.
