Installation of the artificial turf football field at Breaux Bridge High School is now complete. Construction crews finished the field a few days before the Tigers’ home opener.

The project was expected to be completed in July but was put on hold after it was determined the shock pads proposed by the contractor for use under the turf did not meet safety specifications.

The school board worked out a settlement between the contractor and the district so the field could be completed.

The Tigers will host Kinder High School on Friday with kick off at 7:00 pm.
