Muenster, TX – AstroTurf is pleased to welcome the Muenster Independent School District to its family of customers as construction starts on their new stadium field. It may surprise you that Muenster, Texas and AstroTurf have a lot more in common than just a synthetic turf field.
The town of Muenster is a great combination of German-American culture with over 90% of its population having German heritage. While they celebrate German culture, there’s not many places as American as Texas. And there aren’t many brands as American as AstroTurf! AstroTurf has been made in America since 1965 but has benefitted from some German-engineering in the development of the industry’s new wonder-fiber, Trionic™. Five years of pre-market research and development, constant testing, and continuous tweaking have enabled us to create an optimal fiber for long-term integrity and durability.
Muenster ISD will receive one of the most technologically advanced football turf fields in the country – AstroTurf’s 3D3 Blend turf system featuring the Trionic™ fiber. The Trionic™ fiber is a super-fiber that reinforces player-friendly polyethylene fibers with ultra-durable nylon polymers in a feat of chemical engineering never achieved before in the turf industry. The “3D3” designation means the field also has AstroTurf’s patented RootZone, a sub-layer of crimped fibers that stabilizes the infill and increases shock absorbency. All of these factors combine to make a synthetic turf that is stronger, safer, better, and more resilient.
“We really take pride in being the innovation leader in the turf industry,” said AstroTurf Regional GM Jim Savoca. “For us, it’s all about giving the customer a field that is predictable and performs at a high level, and we are confident that the Muenster Hornets are getting just that.”
Muenster High School has been performing at a high level also, coming off a 12-2 season in 2018 and a Texas State Championship in 2017. Head Football Coach, Brady Carney stated, “Getting this new AstroTurf field is a gigantic step for our athletic program. We’ve achieved a high level of success and this field will contribute to building our program and helping it remain successful for years to come.”
Installation for the new field at Hornet Stadium will be handled by Symmetry Turf, AstroTurf’s exclusive distributor in Texas. Symmetry Turf is a construction expert with an impressive resume that includes 7 NFL installations and over 60 NCAA & Military sports field projects.
“Muenster High School is one of the most successful high school athletic programs in the state and we are thrilled to have the opportunity to work with Coach Carney and the Muenster school district to continue our legacy of building high performance fields,” said Symmetry Turf President Jason Bell. “The folks at Muenster ISD are “our kind of people”, the kind of people who value quality products and service in lieu of the main-stream options. They have seen and played on our fields and they have experienced the difference between ours and others.”
