Stadium prepped for new turf
Preparation for the installation of artificial turf is underway at Mike Webster Stadium.
The School District of Rhinelander Board of Education voted June 10 to fund the $573,000 project from the district’s maintenance budget. Ongoing drainage issues have prevented teams from using the field in the recent past and have led the district to make the switch to artificial turf as a more long-term solution.
Turf is expected to be installed beginning Aug. 1, with the field ready for use the first part of September, barring rain days or other difficulties.
