GREENFIELD — The Greenfield-Central football team won’t hit the road for another month, but G-C administrators and coaches will visit various other high school stadiums well before the Cougars head to Mt. Vernon on Sept. 5 for a Week 3 battle.
A committee commissioned by the G-C school board two months ago is planning to tour several area high schools which have switched from natural grass football fields to artificial turf.
The committee was formed to study the possibility of a field upgrade at G-C and, through three meetings, the group has come to at least one conclusion:
“Whether it’s replacing it with natural or going with artificial … we need to do something with that field,” committee chairman and high school associate assistant principal Dave Beal said Tuesday during its most recent meeting.
