Rain slows down new turf installation

Defi­ance High School’s new foot­ball field is tak­ing shape. The Fred J. Brown Sta­dium is get­ting new arti­fi­cial turf. Rains slowed down the progress on Fri­day and Saturday.

The new field will ben­e­fit foot­ball, soc­cer, base­ball and soft­ball teams.

The cost of the project is almost $3.5 mil­lion dol­lars. That includes dugouts, lights, fences, and build­ings for restrooms, press­box, and concessions.
