SprinTurf Installation UPDATE

With fall drills just a couple short weeks away, installation of Idaho's NEW all-rubber infill artificial turf practice fields is nearing the home stretch. This week the turf is being installed, the lights are being installed on the light poles, and detail work surrounding the fields is getting done. When finished, everything about the way Vandal athletics has trained in the past will be changed (new practice fields, new conditioning center, new locker rooms).
