Pioneer Field Wins Softball Field of Year Award

Pioneer Field Wins Softball Field of Year Award


DENTON — Pioneer Field at Texas Woman's University has earned the 2002 Sports Turf Managers Association (STMA) Softball Field of the Year Award in the college/university division.

The Field of the Year Awards are presented for top maintenance of natural playing surfaces and support facilities in four sports areas: baseball, softball, football and soccer. The Field of the Year Awards are the highest honor STMA bestows on a facility.

Constructed in 1996, Pioneer Field is a beautifully maintained playing field in the northeast corner of the TWU campus. Pioneer Field hosts 100 college softball games and 15 high school playoff games during a typical season.

Robert Trevino, TWU landscaping supervisor, and his staff have gradually improved the field since its original construction — adding a lighting system, an irrigation system, additional turf and infield clay.

The award will be presented during the STMA Awards Banquet, scheduled for Jan. 17, 2003 in San Antonio.

STMA is a not-for-profit international association with more than 2,400 sports turf professionals from schools, colleges and universities, parks and recreation and municipal facilities and professional stadiums who promote better and safer sports turf areas.
