DEL RIO, Texas (PRWEB) November 02, 2012
Prior to the football game between the Del Rio Rams and Laredo United Longhorns – two Hellas Sports Construction customers – San Felipe Del Rio CISD’s athletic department, students, athletes, families and fans all stood and recognized Hellas for their recently completed renovations to Walter J. Levermann Ram Stadium and Kruger Field.
Kurt Wofford, Hellas Construction’s Southwest Texas Business Development Manager was in attendance to accept the plaque. With him were his wife and children, and Tommy McDougal, Hellas’ Vice President and Chief Estimator.
Hellas converted Del Rio High School’s existing grass field into a Matrix® Turf synthetic football field. Underneath the artificial turf, Hellas installed a CUSHDRAIN® elastic layer – a proprietary pad that enhances drainage, longevity of the field and shock absorption, leading to increased athlete safety.
Hellas crews also installed an epiQ TRACKS™ S200 running track surface around the new field. Outside of the new track and field lies a Matrix Turf player development area further helping to maximize the use of the facility and breathe new life into Del Rio High School’s athletic and student activity programs.
Hellas Sports Construction crews also re-surfaced the running track at Krueger Field – the athletic facility at Del Rio Middle School.
“I would like to thank and compliment Hellas Construction for their outstanding work on our football field and track,” said Dan Hurley, San Felipe CISD’s Athletic Director. “They were there for us throughout the entire process. They did a great job.”
