Ground was broken Sunday on what will be a new artificial turf surface on the football field at Taylorville High School. Taylorville Assistant Football Coach Lee Mateer says once completed, the new surface will be an asset for the entire community.
Mateer says the project is expected to be finished by August.
The project has been mostly funded through the support of Taylorville residents.
Mateer says the new turf field will have benefits beyond just high school athletics.
While the majority of the money needed has been raised, the Taylorville Quarterback’s Club is just short of its fundraising goal for the project. They will be holding a mostaccioli dinner on Sunday, June 10. For more information, you can call the high school at 824-2268.
