"Workers use strength and finesse to carefully install the new synthetic turf at DePauw University's Blackstock Stadium," notes a caption to a photo in today's Banner-Graphic. "The renovations at DPU span throughout the athletic facilities. Blackstock Stadium is expected to be ready for the fall season when new head coach Bill Lynch begins his second stint as leader of the Tigers."

The surface being installed at Blackstock is AstroTurf® GameDay Grass 3D52 Xtreme™.
