DENTON (7/20/05) - The new Fouts Field playing surface became a step closer to reality with the upcoming delivery of the state-of-the-art Sportexe Omnigrass System.
Installation will begin upon delivery of the 100-percent rubber inlay surface, and is slated to be completed in time for the Mean Green football home opener against Tulsa on Sept. 17.
The field is currently covered in a crushed rock layer that will provide the base for the various layers of the Omnigrass surface. Football lines were chalked onto the rock surface to help installers get an idea for the layout of the playing field.
At the new soccer stadium ditches for the irrigation system are currently being dug. The field, located at the former Liberty Christian School, also received a decorative concrete block retaining wall this week.
Concrete has been poured at three of the four playing grids at the Waranch Tennis Complex located next to Victory Hall. The complex will house 12 courts and a club house and should be completed in October.
