Mondoturf played a key role in our success in 2009. The number and seriousness of turf-related injuries has been significantly reduced, and our student-athletes’ muscles recover much more quickly than when they played on other surfaces. We also have better practices early in the week because our athletes’ legs stay fresher even after a full week of practice and a weekend game. In addition, since we installed Mondoturf, our recruiting has improved. The overall beauty of the turf attracts a lot of attention from our prospects – much more than the natural grass surface we previously had.
Our system relies on the speed of the players, and the technology behind the Mondoturf FTS system provides the stability that is necessary for that speed. We also wanted a field with characteristics that were similar to natural grass while also significantly reducing the heat factor.
