For years when players from opposing football teams would stand on the sidelines and look across Linduska Field in Jefferson, they might think the opposing players had no feet or ankles. Needless to say, the crown on the field was rather pronounced. Earlier this summer, the crown and sod were taken off Linduska field and replaced with a much lower crown, a completely new drainage system, and new sod. With the first varsity football game scheduled for two months from today, it’s going to take more than a little water and perhaps some TLC, but school officials expect the field to be ready to go on Aug. 26 when Greene County faces ACGC.
Greene County will play its girls and boys home soccer matches on Linduska Field starting in 2023, so a much lower crown and new sod will be beneficial there as well.
