Sports Construction management, Inc. gave Appalachian State University’s Sywassink/Lloyd Family Stadium women’s softball field a much needed field renovation and repaired other issues that often kept the team from playing on the athletic field
Appalachian State University women’s softball team will be taking to their familiar softball field this season but it will have a whole new look after Sports Construction Management, Inc. (SCM) completed renovations on the field.
The softball field at Sywassink/Lloyd Family Stadium required a field renovation because of consistent drainage problems. Troy Heustess, Associate Athletics Director/ Facilities said the Boone, N.C. school enlisted SCM to rebuild the field in order to fix those issues. Those problems are gone now that Sports Construction Management, Inc. completed the renovation.
“Shortly after the new drainage system was complete and the sod was put down the mountains experienced near monsoon rains. As wet as it was we could have played on the field right after the rain quit. It was amazing. SCM did a great job and the field looks fantastic. This new softball field has exceeded our expectations,” Heustess said.
Sports Construction Management, Inc. totally rebuilt the team’s softball field and installed a new natural grass surface, drainage system and infield to eliminate the existing drainage issues with the field, according to Leroy Lawson, Executive VP/Director of Sales.
“It was a rewarding experience for us to have a part in improving the softball field for the University and the players and it was especially exciting to be able to have it completed within a tight time line,” said Lawson.
Head coach, Shae Wesley said, it was great working with SCM on the new softball field knowing they could trust the company to meet the team’s requirements for the field. Wesley said the school was more than satisfied with the results.
“Our new field is gorgeous and SCM was very enjoyable to work with. Their staff was very professional and efficient at renovating our existing field. In my opinion SCM set out not to just complete the job to specs, but went above and beyond to create a field and home our team could be proud of. SCM even took the time to explain the smaller options that may be worth considering. They were constantly asking for my staff’s input, which was huge for us” Wesley said.
Originally converted from baseball to softball in 2007, Sywassink/Lloyd Family Stadium is the on-campus home for ASU Mountaineer softball. The stadium is a gem for the Mountaineers seating 1,000 and featuring a natural-grass playing surface, state-of-the art press box and concessions.
