Facilities Update Photo Album


DENTON (8/24/05) - Final preparations are being made at Fouts Field to make the new Sportexe Omnigrass surface available for the Mean Green football team.


Crews have finished installing the 100-percent rubber infill and have begun the grooming process to help the rubber particles settle to the bottom.


Once completed, the team will be able to practice on the surface in preparation for their home opener against Tulsa on September 17.


Construction also continued on the Waranch Tennis Pavilion. Light poles are still being installed as well as fencing on the remaining playing sites. The clubhouse roof was installed over the weekend and the remainder of the exterior walls is scheduled to be completed soon.


Lockers were installed at the former Liberty Christian School for the volleyball, soccer and softball teams. The lockers are sport specific with different compartments and features for the different sports. Carpet will be installed in the locker rooms soon.


All four light poles were installed at the new soccer stadium, paving the way for the turf installation. The new grass will be brought in and installed over the next few weeks.
