Thanks to Tim McMonigle of West Seattle Soccer Club for the tip that Hiawatha’s starting to get its new turf, part of field improvements that should be complete next month. Tim added: “I talked to one of the workers there and they said they’ll probably have the turf laid in the next week, then another couple weeks after that for all the prep work (lines glued, spreading rubber pellets). The backstops and track are all installed, although they still need to put rubber on the track. This will be fun watching the dramatic transformation over the next month.” As the official page for the project puts it, the finished fields will include “full-size facilities” for soccer, baseball and football.
