Rebels’ rug is ready
It may be fake grass, but it’s a real big deal at Boyle County, where there won’t be any more poor field conditions at Rebel Stadium for the forseeable future.
The installation of artificial turf has been completed, and the field is already being put to good use. Practices began on the field Monday, and the boys soccer team played the first two contests on the new surface Tuesday and Thursday.
The stadium will host games by Boyle’s football, soccer and softball teams. It’s the first high school stadium in our area to have artificial turf, and the first in central Kentucky outside Lexington.
Boyle’s girls soccer team will play its first home game on turf Monday against Mercer County. The Boyle football team will get its chance Sept. 17, also against Mercer.
