At the RJWAC’s southern field, there has been recent construction added to the field.  Lights have been installed and AstroTurf has been rolled out onto the field. The previous condition of the field was deteriorating with goat’s head burs and other weeds.  The field is receiving new life as it was previously unsuitable for competitive play due to environmental conditions.127

The AstroTurf will help with lower upkeep costs.  The renovation prepares the field for practices and games. This will allow more than one game to be planned for the same times at Gary Berry.   This may happen multiple times this year, as over 500 athletic events have been scheduled so far for this school year (2016-2017).

The southern field renovation was financially possible, unlike some other planned additions to the athletic programs. Voters will decide on a new Bond Issue and Mill Levy Override this November. 128If this passes, other renovations of fields in the District are planned for completion or renovation.
