NOW: Board votes to replace Mishawaka High School’s grass field with turf

ST. JOSEPH COUNTY, Ind. - The School City of Mishawaka Board of Trustees voted to replace the grass field at Mishawaka High School's Steele Stadium with artificial turf. 

The main reason for the change comes down to money, as maintenance for the turf field will cost significantly less than the grass field, which was in the $140,000 range to maintain. 

However, not everyone is happy with this switch. 

This switch does come with some risk, as studies show that artificial turf is more prone to injuries than regular grass fields.
