AUSTIN, Texas, Jun. 11, 2015 /PRNewswire-iReach/ — Repeat customer Sundown ISD contracts Hellas for $1.58 million to resurface their existing Matrix ® Turf field and epiQ Tracks ® running track with new systems at Slaughter Field. The project broke ground April 30th and will be completed on July 31, in time for the Roughneck’s first football game of the season.
The 70 year old stadium began improvements by demolishing the previous S200 running track surface then upgrade to the epiQ Tracks ® G4000 running system. The G4000 Grand Performance System will be poured into place on June 23rd and provide a durable, resilient, textured, all-weather surface.

“This will be the third contract we have signed with Hellas over the years. They had the original turf on Slaughter Field which made going back to Hellas again come naturally,” says Scott Marshall, the Superintendent for Sundown ISD. “We are very excited to continue the relationship,” he says.
