Artificial turf project at McKeand Stadium underway

The new artificial turf playing surface and new track project at Shelbyville High School’s J.M. McKeand Stadium is underway.

Work started Tuesday with the grass playing surface being stripped and hauled away.

An artificial turf playing surface will be installed in time for Shelbyville’s football home opener on Aug. 25 when Rushville comes to town for a week two game.



The Golden Bears open the 2023 season on Aug. 18 at Greensburg before hosting Rushville and Delta in back-to-back weeks.
