Tech places cover on practice field
January 17, 2002

The Tech athletics department placed a "growth" cover over the football practice field Wednesday in an attempt to get the bluegrass surface to grow throughout the winter. The cover not only warms the surface, but it also allows both sun and the rain to filter through, providing the optimum growing condition in the winter. The cover is stapled to the ground with large staples so that the wind can't blow the cover away. The cover will be removed this spring once spring practice begins.
