Perry High School installed their previous FieldTurf surfaces in 1993, 2005 and now, after over 25 years of combined play on FieldTurf, the Pirates are resurfacing with an upgraded FieldTurf system. Program officials opted to join a growing number of facilities whom are recycling a portion of the current infill into their new surface. The Ohio high school announced that the new multi-purpose sports field will feature the latest in synthetic turf innovation: FieldTurf CORE. The new multi-layer dual-polymer technology is designed to deliver the highest fiber performance and resiliency available on the market.
“This is our third field installation with FieldTurf, the first one was in 1993, we were probably one of the earliest adopters.” said TJ Rockwell, Athletic Director, Perry High School, adding “We like being ahead of the curve and this is the latest and greatest. One of our coaches has a friend in the athletic department at Rutgers University and they loved their new field with the CORE fibers so much that we needed to try it out for ourselves. Our stadium’s been a big home field advantage for us with the turf and we’re looking forward to showing off our new field next season.”
