92127’s Maranatha Christian Schools (MCS) is updating its athletic fields with new turf installation. “The days of melting cleats and crumb rubber concerns will not be seen or heard here at MCS,” said MCS Superintendent Jess Hetherington. The turf used will be Hellas Construction’s GEO Plus™ Infill, made from natural coconut fibers and cork designed not to overheat. According to Hetherington, the turf also reduces water usage by 90% compared to natural grass.

The field project will include two new multi-use athletic fields, a girls’ softball field, a renovated and rotated baseball field, and new sprint lands and a jump pit for track athletes. “The completion of this multi-use field project will be a game-changer for the athletic program,” said MCS Athletic Director Steve Whitley, “Not only that, but these fields will make a tremendous impact to the 4S Ranch, Rancho Bernardo, and Rancho Santa Fe communities.” The project is currently underway, with a five-month target for completion.
