Ribbon-cutting for Rosemont’s new track and field on Wednesday
High-tech, $1.97 million project funded by Measure R bonds

Press release

May 12, 2014 (Sacramento):  SCUSD will hold a ribbon-cutting ceremony on Wednesday to open Rosemont High School’s new $1.97 million track and field, a project funded by Measure R.

Made in the USA with recycled rubber, the sandwich-style track surface is free of harmful heavy metals and durable enough for world-class performance training and competition. The equivalent of 7,000 passenger tires was kept from landfills through the recycling process.

The field is made of natural looking AstroTurf GameDay Grass which is used in such collegiate football stadiums as those at Michigan State University and Kansas State University. A study by the NFL Charities Foundation shows that GameDay Grass helps lower the risk of ankle and knee joint injuries.

Rosemont High, opened in 2003, is home to the Wolverines. Sports teams that will use the new athletic facilities include football, soccer and track and field.

WHEN: 11:30 a.m. on Wednesday, May 14
