Sports Turf Company was selected in 2020 to renovate Billy Henderson Stadium at Clarke Central High School in Athens, GA. The full scope of the project included the renovation of both the track and field prior football season in 2020.
Sports Turf renovated Billy Henderson Stadium to a system that features AstroTurf’s RootZone 3D3 Blend turf system, Brock Powerbase YSR shock pad, and BrockFILL. The dense, three-fiber turf artificial turf system adds a RootZone layer of texturized fibers that encapsulates infill, provides better shock absorbency and less infill migration or “rubber splash” than traditional systems. The revolutionary Brock Powerbase YSR shock pad technology features large drainage channels, shock-absorbing structures and 25mm thickness to improve player safety and provide more effective drainage. The artificial turf infill, BrockFILL, is a highly engineered wood particle infill specifically designed to improve traction and reduce artificial turf heat. The organic infill was derived from the trees that have surrounded the field since its inception, honoring the deep-rooted history of the sports program and paying homage to the rich community of Athens, Ga.
Sports Turf renovated Clarke Central High School’s existing running track and expanded the running surface to eight lanes to accommodate hosting track meets. The existing asphalt was milled, and the track was expanded with new asphalt and a Rekortan G-13 track surface.
