Lake Charles, LA (June 5, 2018 ) –
The McNeese Cowboys are ready to burst out of the gate and on to the field with new Matrix® Turf with Helix Technology. Hellas Construction just completed the installation of new synthetic turf at McNeese State University’s Cowboy Stadium.
McNeese Director of Athletics Bruce Hemphill said, “Hellas Construction did a terrific job installing the new turf. The look and feel of the surface is second to none. Our fans are going to love the new look.”
Head Coach Lance Guidry said, “Our players and coaches are really excited about the new look and design of the field. Our players are even more excited about the softness of the turf and the sure footing it provides.”
The Matrix Helix turf is the same artificial turf that the Dallas Cowboys, Houston Texans, and Miami Dolphins have selected. The product quality, performance, and longevity are unmatchable.
Hemphill said, “To be able to compete on one of the finest fields that was produced by one of the top turf companies in America is tremendous and then to be able to play on the same surface that the Dallas Cowboys and Houston Texans compete on is a compliment to our program. This field will help our athletes compete at the highest level.”
