After a passionate plea from supporters of both soccer and football at the Luxemburg-Casco School Board meeting last week, the school district is looking at accommodating both programs. The board remains steadfast on a commitment to have new lights installed on the grass soccer field, according to School Superintendent Glenn Schlender. He adds that the school district is willing to partner with the L-C Football Booster Club in the future in getting a sports turf on the football field as well.
Green Bay area schools including Notre Dame and West De Pere already have artificial turf fields, according to Schlender. Matt Piesler, who is heading up a football booster club committee, estimates that costs for a sports turf at about $1 Million.
