It's finally down!

Louise football field after the new grass (turf) was laid down in late May. Pictured at left: the field days before the new grass was installed at Louise.

After two years (one football season), Louise now has green grass growing on their football field and this season the Hornets will have home games.

Keith Wittig of Central Turf Farms of Wharton donated the Hornets truckloads full of grass, enough to fill their entire field, 57,600 square feet. While the exact cost of the donation isn’t known, the Louise ISD estimates they saved tens of thousands of dollars through the Central Turf Farms gift.
