Posted: Updated:

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio - The high school football season opens in less than 60 days and three facilities will debut new field turf.

Southern Local is the second school in Columbiana County to go with the artificial surface.

Work is continuing at Memorial Stadium in Hubbard where crews have been working to get the surface ready for installation. This is not the first renovation in Hubbard, several years ago they erected new bleachers and a press box.

Work is also at a fever pitch at Bo Rein Stadium in Niles. Crews have removed the old natural surface and are starting the process of putting in drainage before laying the new artificial surface.

Eighteen schools from the five county area will be using facilities with turf this coming season.

There are four stadiums each in Mahoning and Trumbull counties and five facilities in Mercer and Lawrence counties. Columbiana County will have two facilities with turf for the upcoming season.
