The artificial turf on the infields of both the new baseball and softball fields at Red River High is being replaced. The old turf has been removed and is piled outside both fields.
Superintendent Alison Hughes reported to the School Board on Monday that the issue is with work done by a subcontractor. “It’s all on them,” she added, “The turf will be replaced and redone correctly.”
Work on correcting the problem and getting new turf on the infield of both the baseball and softball diamonds should be completed in the next four months. The new fields are part of a major expansion of the Red River High athletic complex. Both fields hosted the first home playoff games ever for the Bulldogs and Lady Bulldogs.
