The LandTek Group installs new synthetic turf field in Christiansburg, Virginia
Last year, the Montgomery County Board of Supervisors and the school board approved athletic field improvements by The LandTek Group.
CHRISTIANSBURG, VA — On Friday August 17th, Christiansburg High School’s benefit game was special because it’s being played on a brand-new turf field installed by The LandTek Group.
Last year, the Montgomery County Board of Supervisors and the school board approved athletic field improvements by The LandTek Group. Before the August 17th game, members of both boards took the field and were honored for their part in making it all possible.
“This is a spectacular feeling. It’s something we’ve been waiting on for a long time,” said Tony Deibler, principal of Christiansburg High School.
“A lot of nice things have been done around the county at our other schools, and now our residents here in Christiansburg are saying ‘Hey, it’s our turn to upgrade our facilities as well,'” said Mark Miear, superintendent of Montgomery County Schools.
Through each snap of the ball, tackle and touchdown, the transformation was easy to see.
Members of the district knew that renovations to the existing grass field were needed, with a conversion to synthetic turf being the eventual outcome. “It was a grass field.
We had a huge crown on it, so if you were standing on one sideline and the ball was on the other sideline, you couldn’t even see the ball,” said Deibler.
Officials say it’s not only a win for players, but for the Christiansburg community as a whole.
“The community loves Christiansburg high school sports. They support us. They come out,” said Deibler.
The new synthetic turf field has already helped the Christiansburg High School Blue Demons create memories, with the team recording a 37-0 win over Carroll County in the first game played on the new synthetic turf field.
