Football - Fri, Aug. 17, 2012
In early May, Vescio Sport Fields and Partners began work on
the new iHigh.com Field at Georgetown College's Toyota Stadium and Friday the
Tigers took to the new surface for the first time.
With the turf at home, Georgetown will not play one
regular season game on a natural surface. The field came together through the
partnership of iHigh.com, owned by Jim Host, GC Athletic Director Brian Evans
and Scott County High School.
Friday evening, the Cardinals will be the first team to play
on the new surface. The Tigers will not be on the field until Sept. 1 when men's
soccer hosts its Georgetown Classic. The football Tigers hit the turf for their
first home game Sept. 6 under the lights on a Thursday evening. Faulkner
University will be the first opponent on a night filled with ceremonies.
This is the night GC's is calling for 10,000 Tigers with
the idea to get all alumni, students, fans, faculty and staff joining together
as one Tiger Nation in presence or through following on iHigh.com/georgetowncollege,
Tweeter at GCAthletics or Facebook at GC Athletics.
Baseball will hand out rings before the game, while the
1982 men's basketball team - recently inducted as a team into the GC Hall of
Fame - will be recognized at halftime. Between the first and second quarter,
iHigh.com employees will be honored for their efforts in making the long
awaited surface a reality.
