Installation of synthetic turf at Asheville High nearly complete
A new field is coming together quickly at Asheville High, where crews began installing synthetic turf a few weeks ago.
The turf will replace material that has been in place since 2005.
Athletic director Lance Abernathy says it is a much-needed upgrade.
"Ours was showing some age. It was still usable, but showing some age," Abernathy said. "Makes it safer and makes it usable for all our sports and activities for years to come."
The field will be installed by Monday. Then it will be inspected and should be ready for use at the end of next week.
