Bethel Schools cut ribbon on new turf field

The Bethel Public School District has cut the ribbon on a new turf field. A private donor, who has asked to remain anonymous, offered to pay for the new multi-sport turf complex.  The field could be used for softball, baseball, soccer, lacrosse and field hockey.  Claris, the firm involved with the Track and Field Training Facility near the High School, also added lighting. The encapsulated rubber turf for the area, except for the football field, is reportedly safer than the traditional rubber system, stays cooler and allows the ball to move faster than on natural grass.  It also has a 50-percent longer lifespan than so-called coconut infill.
