Freeport High Field
After a decade of discussion and 3 ballot rejections by voters, a new $4.8 million complex featuring an eight-lane track and an athletic field for lacrosse, field hockey and football was approved.
The project was funded by $2.3 million in donations raised by Tri-Town Track and Field, a citizen group supporting the project. The donation includes a $1.3 million pledge from the Nike Corporation. The school district was responsible for the remaining $2.1 million.
The field turf utilizes the more expensive Nike Grind instead of crumb rubber, the most common type of artificial field surface.
Allegheny Mineral provided Sport Field Mix aggregate for the duration of the project.
