Miller begins new search for SHS coach
SHS athletic needs highlight ‘sobering’ school budget concerns | http://www.starkville-now.com
Miller asked for more than $1 million to replace the football field's grass with artificial turf, resurface the track and expand the tennis courts, noting the upgrades would save money in maintenance and repairs, as well as generate revenue through tournament opportunities.
The biggest sticking point was time.
Miller estimated six to eight weeks for the synthetic playing surface to be installed at Yellow Jacket Stadium.
The team will play their first home game against Noxubee County High School Aug. 17.
The project would cost around $560,000, but Miller said it would alleviate problems with the sprinkler and irrigation systems, which are costing thousands of dollars in field maintenance and repair each season.
Because the track circles the field and involves curbing, the resurfacing and turf replacement should be done concurrently, Miller said.
The track was built in 2000, but the athletics department ran out of money, so instead of adding an all-weather track surface, they installed unsealed asphalt.
Over the years, the surface has cracked, making a dangerous situation for runners, said Miller.
