Webb City Chooses Midwest Synthetic Turf and Sporturf

Recently Midwest Synthetic Turf was contracted to install a new football field for Webb City high school after the existing turf reached the end of its useful life. The existing drainage base was not draining correctly so the necessary repairs were added as part of the project.  School officials were very interested in pad underlayment as a way to improve GMax performance so Craig Shonk and his team installed a Brock pad under the field.

Midwest Synthetic Turf was selected by the turf Committee based on their expertise and reputation as ASBA Certified Field Builders.  MWSTP once again teamed with Byrne and Jones to complete the base work.  School officials had a lot of confidence in this team given the amount of work they have completed in the area over the last few years.

PowerHouse is one of our most advanced system designs that provides high resilience and increased comfort and safety. The series is made up of some of the most proven and durable fibers in the world. PowerHouse truly is a workhorse and will withstand the rigors of wear and tear for many years.

Concordia University Installs Sporturf™ Field

In 2016 Midwest Synthetic Turf Professionals was contracted to replace the existing worn out synthetic turf surface for Concordia University and replace it with Sporturf™ PowerHouse.

PowerHouse 2 1/2” pile height was chosen by the school to add additional sand for weight to stabilize the turf surface during heavy rain events.  Due to the natural terrain, the existing turf experienced some movement due to rainwater rushing onto the field so MWSTP considered those issues when planning the new field.

The PowerHouse series is made up of some of the most proven and durable fibers in the world making it the ideal choice for the Concordia Bulldogs.

Concordia University

Concordia University is a private, coeducational institution of higher learning located in Seward, Nebraska, about 25 miles west of Lincoln.

Joe T. Robinson High School of Little Rock, AR recently hired Sporturf™ dealer Craig Shonk of Midwest Synthetic Turf Professionals LLC to construct their new field.

The new turf field proudly displays a “12” in the center for players and fans to remember that they are not immune to tragedy; the “12” is in memory of Matthew “Birde” Burdick who was the starting quarterback his senior in 2003. Unfortunately, Matthew was in a deadly car accident on September 12, 2003.

“It reminds us life is precious.  We have got to live every day to the fullest, don’t waste an opportunity,” said Coach Todd Eskola, athletic director and head football coach at Robinson.

Silverback™ Pure Strength For Athletes

Silverback™ is our unique recipe for our specialty Polyurethane backing system.

Silverback™ saturates the primary backing of the synthetic turf and effectively locks the grass blades in place. While most polyurethane backings are a simple coating over the primary backing, Silverback™ actually penetrates into the stitch, surrounding every tuft and interlocking the grass blades into the primary backing. This process leaves you with a superior tuft lock well above the industry standard and ideal for any sports application.

Sportscapes Construction Installs MT50 for Waverly High

Recently Sportscapes Construction installed 100,000 square feet of Sporturf™ MT50 for Waverly High School in Ohio.  The crew removed the tired natural grass surface and replaced it with a layered stone base which included a brand new concrete curb on the inside of the track surface.  Once the stone base and curb were in place it was time for the MT50 to be installed.  MT50 is a combination of high performance monofilament face yarn and a texturized thatch that traps and minimizes infill movement. Dan Hodson of Sportscapes Construction stated, “They (Waverly) really enjoyed the look and feel of the monofilament fiber and thatch layer from the beginning.”

As the base layer was being finalized, a ceremony was held to explain the project and show the students and staff items that were set to go in a time capsule that would be buried under the field. Those items included signed jerseys, shirts and a photo from the senior groups who use the field for football, soccer, cheerleading and marching band, as well as a shirt with all of the signatures from Waverly’s graduating class of 2015.

During the assembly Hodson had an opportunity to address the students saying, “Congratulations to you seniors. You all paved the way for this today. Enjoy this. I build fields all over the country,” said Hodson. “To see this community pull together and pull something like this off is a testament to everyone in this room. You may not know how difficult of a project this is. It is extremely difficult. You all are blessed.”  He went on to challenge the athletes by saying, “For every football field we have built, the offense has scored on the opening drive. No pressure. Waynesville that we built last year scored on their opening drive to make it 19 in a row,” said Hodson. “For girls’ soccer, for eight years in a row, the girls’ soccer team has won their opening game. We will be watching to make sure it is number nine. For eight years in a row, the band has won a regional competition. All this is to say, I am super excited to be a part of the project. You are going to have a ball on this field. I hope to come back here next year and celebrate a lot of victories here.”

When asked how the product looked after the project was complete Hodson said, “I have never seen a better looking field, the colors on the field just pop! It looks sharp!” We couldn’t agree more, the field is beautiful!
