Warrensburg High School installs new AstroTurf sports facilities

June 15, 2022

Mid-America Sports Construction recently completed a series of installation projects using AstroTurf products at Warrensburg High School in Warrensburg, Mo.

The school installed all four of AstroTurf’s products – AstroTurf fields, Rekortan track, Laykold tennis courts and SYNLawn landscaping – through six different installations.

“It’s rare to have all of these products in the same place and to do them all pretty quickly. It’s been a great project,” said Brock Wilson, marketing and sales manager at Mid-America Sports Construction. “We did the football and track projects in 2021. Before we were finished, we started talking about the baseball and softball and tennis courts.”

Mid-America Sports Construction installed a SYNLawn synthetic grass at the entrance of the football stadium after installing the new football field in March of 2o21. The football field is an AstroTurf RootZone 3D3 Trionic Blend 52 turf system.

“Our athletes and coaches love the playability of AstroTurf fields,” said Keith Chapman, athletic director for Warrensburg High School. “The consistent surface has allowed our programs to compete daily on the new installations.”

The school chose the Rekortan BSS Basemat for the new track encircling the field, a 13mm impermeable track system with an encapsulated wear layer and textured structural polyurethane. The new running surface also features Rekortan’s SMART technology embedded in the track. Included technology has magnetic gates embedded in the track connecting to a sensor or smartphone worn by the runner. This provides competitive athletes and coaches with advanced diagnostic information on force, agility, speed and endurance.

In early 2022, Mid-America Sports Construction installed new baseball and softball fields. The ball fields were upgraded to AstroTurf’s Diamond Series Diamond Blend OPS turf systems. These fields feature nylon in the base paths and infield to create realistic sliding distances and a combination of specialized fibers and customizable infill ratios. For the tennis courts, a Laykold Advantage system was installed on top of post-tension concrete.
