WASHINGTON - The summertime at Georgetown is a chance to refresh and regroup for many in athletics and the field at Multi-Sport Field, home of the Hoya football and men's and women's lacrosse team, is no different.

In late May, just before Memorial Day, the entire field at Multi-Sport Field went through a resurfacing, with the old turf being removed and the new turf installed in early June.

The Multi-Sport Field is used constantly throughout the academic year and the newly-added synthetic surface from Shaw Sports Turf helps to accommodate that usage, while looking good and performing at a high level throughout the life of the field. The same system is used on the practice and game fields of the Super Bowl Champion Baltimore Ravens.

"The resurfacing of the Multi-Sport Field is something that will be of great benefit for our coaches and student-athletes," Director of Intercollegiate Athletics Lee Reed said. "From the fall to the spring seasons, many of our teams use the field in some capacity and we are looking forward to the start of the season with the new surface."

The Shaw Sports Turf Momentum system mirrors the same look and feel as natural grass and is known for its durability and overall performance. With a 2.5-inch pile height and a two-inch infill that is a 50-50 mix of sand and rubber, the Momentum 51 system offers the best combination of firmness, speed and safety.

"We chose Shaw Sports Turf because we recognized the quality the company and the products they provide. "The field is in use from morning until night almost every day," Associate Athletics Director for Facilities and Operations Brian McGuire said. We know that our new Momentum 51 system will be able to handle the heavy use by our teams."

The Georgetown football team plays its first game of the 2013 season on Saturday, Sept. 7, hosting Davidson. Kickoff is slated for 6 p.m.
