The new turf field at Central Cabarrus is taking shape. Above you can see that most of the turf is on the field. Numbers and a logo will be cut into the field this week and rubber pellets will be embedded in surface. You can see some of the pallets of pellets below that are waiting to be installed.

Workers hope to have the field ready for practice by Friday.

Pallets of rubber pellets will be embedded in the Central Cabarrus new turf field. It will be one of the final steps in getting the field ready for play
