Although there has been a lot of wet weather in recent times, work on the new football, track and soccer facility at the old St. James High School football facility in Rolla Missouri continues to progress. As it is reaching the important parts of the installation the progress has started to intensify in activity.

The company installing the St. James turf is ATG Sports which is the same company that installed Rolla High School’s synthetic turf at Lions Memorial Field. It is also currently in the early stages of installing two synthetic turf fields at Missouri S&T, including the Miners’ game field at Allgood-Bailey Stadium.

At St. James, the new turf foundation has been laid and several yards of the new synthetic turf is now down. In addition, a 16-10 retaining wall has been erected on the south end, as part of the complex’s tree line had to be removed to expand the track to regulation size.

There are other changes being made to the field such as the movement of the scoreboard to be more easily seen by fans sitting in the bleachers. Improvements were also made to the locker room area.
