When the spring game ended for South Carolina, the work on the field began. Literally.
South Carolina tore up the field at Williams-Brice Stadium and began the process of installing a new sand-based field and drainage system. The new $995,000 irrigation, drainage and sod system will maintain the natural grass field while creating a flatter playing surface that will drain better.
South Carolina gave The Columbia State an update on the field installation as the drainage system is complete and workers begin layering in the sand base.
The field should be complete in time for the beginning of fall practice. South Carolina should be ready to begin installing the sod in about two weeks.
It should make for a better playing surface.
