Stadiums prep for synthetic turf installation

Rebecca Leftwich / The Newnan Times-Herald

Newnan High School’s Drake Stadium is being prepared for the installation of a new track and artificial turf, part of a $5.4 million ESPLOST project that includes track renovations and necessary modifications to accommodate the artificial turf at each of Coweta County’s three public high school football stadiums. Drake Stadium’s field is expected to be complete in time for the Cougars’ home football opener Aug. 17. East Coweta and Northgate high schools play their first home games Sept. 14, and turf installations at both Shoemake Stadium and Henry Seldon Field are scheduled for completion by then.
