NU one step closer to new turf

The California Integrated Waste Management Board has given $100,000 to Nevada Union High School to construct an all-weather synthetic turf field at Hooper Stadium.

The grant increases the likelihood that the all-weather field can be built in time for the 2005-06 school year. Nevada Union boosters have raised in excess of $100,000 to replace the grass at the high school football field.

Instructors at Nevada Union High School say the all-weather synthetic turf, which would be made from recycled rubber tires, would allow year-round use by school and community groups.
