Central and Reitz getting new turf fields


EVANSVILLE, Ind (WEHT) – Central Stadium and the Reitz Bowl will have new turf fields by fall.

The EVSC is spending more than $780,000 to replace the turf at Central Stadium. School officials expect the contract for the Reitz Bowl to be just under $400,000. In the past two years, Enlow field was redone in spots when the new track was installed.

Superintendent Doctor David Smith says spending about $1 million on the fields sound pricey, but he says it’s cheaper than maintaining grass. He says it also creates a safer, more level field for high school athletes.

Doctor Smith says the turf at Bosse High School’s Enlow Field was replaced two years ago during stadium renovations. A contract is also in the works to install five new tennis courts at Bosse.
