"It's one of the premier turfs out in the market."
Donna ISD former athletic director Ralph Leal about Desso iDNA

Always available sports facilities with Desso iDNA

With a new high school soon to be opened, Donna ISD considered the time ripe for an upgrade of their Bennie LaPrade Stadium. The stadium field is used for intensive football and soccer. The existing natural grass was not up to this heavy use and couldn’t deal with severe weather conditions. Donna ISD former athletic director Ralph Leal: “If you would have one heavy rain storm, it would tear up the field completely.”

Increase longevity of stadium field

Donna ISD also wanted to increase the longevity of the field without the additional cost of maintenance. Synthetic turf was thus an obvious choice. The school district tried out several turf products, but decided to go for Desso iDNA. Ralph Leal: “We liked the way it felt. It felt good running in it. When we saw the fields, it felt like it can last longer. It's one of the premier turfs out in the market.”

Ensure facilities grow as fast as school district

With Desso iDNA, the field can always be played on, no matter what the weather. “Now with heavy rain, there is no standing water. We've had heavy rain and it was already worked,” says Leal. With Desso iDNA synthetic turf, the stadium will be able to better address the needs of the growing school district and its addition of their second school.
