Kentucky Schools with Field Turf

Recommended Posts

We had a thread a couple of years back listing the number of schools with turf fields. I've kept a list that continues to accumulate; I believe there are now 93 schools with turf and 128 with natural grass surfaces. (This doesn't include Covington Holy Cross or Newport Central Catholic who don't have their own stadium, although both would also go on the turf side). Below are the turf fields effective at the start of this season (or midseason if the work isn't complete at this point). If I've missed any, feel free to add to the list.

If what I hear is correct, North Oldham and Oldham County will soon be added to that list, but not this season.   

Surprised it has taken this long, especially since South Oldham has had turf for quite some time.

Good question. I think there is dual-ownership. Maybe someone out west can clarify for us.

The stadium is on KWC property, but the family it’s named after, or the money largely came from  Catholic high.  It’s dually shared and sits in a beautiful area.  That’s what I’ve always been told.  Catholic used to share Owensboro’s Rash stadium for years.

The other two schools spent their money on different projects.....    But you are correct; South has now had an artificial field for over 20 years.

Hard to believe that Male still plays on grass. By the time the playoffs come around, their field is a mess. Can you image with their speed playing on artificial turf?

You can thank the wizards running JCPS for that...but that is a thread for another day!
