Two area schools are also considering turf fields for the future, St. Marys and Coldwater, while Parkway is looking at a renovation of it’s football facility and a possible site location. Most schools site the fact that more than just football use the field and would allow for many benefits in scheduling, including state play-off games, lower maintenance fees and other cost savings over the years.
