West Plains High School Heals with Sporturf

On April 26 West Plains High School received severe hail damage.  On April 29 they experienced the worst flood for this area in past 500 years. According to Greg Simpkins, Athletic Director for West Plains High School, “All of our athletic fields were flood damaged.  We had to cancel all of our home games for the remainder of the spring 2017 spring sports season.”

West Plains High School, home of the Zizzers, contracted with Craig Shonk of Midwest Synthetic Turf Professionals to get their field cleaned up and installed in record time.

Suffice it to say Craig Shonk had his work cut out for him and Sporturf™ had to produce a top-notch field with an incredibly tight deadline.

On June 19, Craig and his crew began work on replacing and repairing Zizzer Stadium’s track and turf field.

The turf field was ready by their first home varsity football game on Friday, 8/18/17 and track resurfacing was completed by the second home varsity football game on Friday, 9/1/17.  The Zizzers did not miss a home varsity football game thanks to Craig and Sporturf.

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.

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.
