Savage Stadium Gets Ready for New Season

Resurfacing Work Underway at Savage Stadium

L. E. Renner Sports Surfaces has been busy the past few days, taking advantage of the sunny skies and low winds, putting a new surface to the track at Savage Stadium in Lamar.  The entire fence surrounding the stadium and track and football fields has been lined to keep down any stray paint and minimize paint fumes from drifting into the neighborhoods. 

Field Perimeter is Fenced in During Resurfacing Project

RE-2 School Superintendent, Dave Tecklenburg, said this was the same company that had initially installed the original surface years ago, and was the low bidder for the project this year.  Staffon Warn, RE-2 Maintenance Manager said a resurfacing project is done about every 6 to 8 years. 

He added, “They have already power washed down the track and filled in some low spots, smoothing it out all around the field.”  Warn added, “The crew has applied a liner coating and after that, they’ll apply a new textured surface, the familiar paint is sprayed on and we should be good to go in a couple of days.” 

Tecklenburg said the company was delayed from their original contract date, but the stadium and the field will be ready for the Savages first home game when they host Centauri on September 7.  The JV football team hosts Burlington on September 1 at 11am.
