CHS to Play First GHSA Division A Season on New Turf

Shaw Sports Turf is set to install a new 79,950 square foot field at Christian Heritage High School this week. The new synthetic turf field is just one of many upgrades for the athletic facilities scheduled to unveil this fall.

Seven years ago, CHS began their football program without a field in place. Fast forward to 2012, the school will feature a new 2,000-seat facility, surrounded by a Shaw Sports Turf synthetic field. The new construction is just in time for the school’s emergence into the Georgia High School Association for the 2012-13 school year.

The field will feature Shaw’s PowerBlade HP+ turf system including an infill mixture of sand and rubber. PowerBlade HP+ is an engineered system specifically built for performance needs where athlete-surface and ball-surface interactions are critical. The school plans to use the field for multiple sports, including both football and soccer. The turf will be patterned with alternating panels of green and feature colored coaches boxes on the sidelines. In addition to the Lion’s center logo, the sidelines will include Shaw Sports Turf logos.

“Our Shaw Sports Turf field will serve as the centerpiece of our newly-renovated stadium”, said Preston Poag, CHS Athletic Director and Head Football Coach. “We are excited to watch the Lions thrive on it for many football seasons to come.”

“We are proud to support one of our local community schools,” said Chuck McClurg, Vice President of Sales, Shaw Sports Turf. “As CHS continues to elevate their program, we are honored to be their surface of choice as they look to enter the state’s highest level of competition.”

In addition to the stadium, CHS’s additions will include new seating and lighting, a field house at the west end of the football field and a new press box.
