Laguna, N-U Plays a Mud Bowl

I am coming out with an article about this, but did you see all the muck Laguna Creek and Nevada Union played in on Halloween night? They looked like extras for the movie Leatherheads. I'd have to agree with Joe Davidson of the "Bee" ... it is embarrassing for an Elk Grove School District facility to be in this kind of shape.

We're not playing football like they did in the 1940s. This is the age of turf, like it or not.  

My story in the Citizen will quote an assistant superintendent who says there will be one or two of the EGUSD facilities which will be playing on turf by opening kickoff in 2009. 

But, we need to take issue with the fact there is little or no maintenance on the facilities right now and school athletic directors are being told to keep their hands off the fields.  Lots of parents/fans have offered to take care of the fields, but have been told, "no."
