Is there life (or fields) after football?greenspun.com : LUSENET : Grady Cyberspace Project - Real News : One Thread
APS has planned to resod the Grady HS field immediately after football season officially ends. It is my understanding that this is a maintenance and preservation initiative. It eliminates the use of the field for the upcoming Soccer Season, which unofficially starts immediately after football and officially after winter break.
There has been no communication from APS as to their plan to address the facilities that will be used for the upcoming soccer season. Soccer is played on grass, just like football. Grass (Sod) doesn't grow in winter, does it? Should Grady soccer teams, who traditionally meet regional competition, trade in their cleats for mudd boots? or Cancel the season? How about a logical alternative plan that includes competition and practice fields.
