Foothill opens new turf soccer field
Foothill College celebrated the completion of its new environmentally friendly soccer field Sept. 7 when the women’s soccer team hosted Cypress. Construction began in January and was completed over the summer, according to Foothill officials. The artificial turf surface, made from cork, replaced the grass field that required frequent watering and maintenance. “The underlayment is considered by the turf industry as one of the best products in minimizing concussions,” Foothill athletic director Mike Teijeiro said in a press release.
