In this issue, you can read all about how our team executed a new synthetic turf infield for St. Laurence High School just in time for the spring season.

As always, thank you for your interest in WT Group.

“If you design and build it, they will come…”
WT Group has had a relationship with St. Laurence for more than 15 years. The firm was first engaged by a landscape architect to work on a variety of sports assets, including synthetic turf fields and the design of a football and track stadium. So, when St. Laurence decided it was time for a changeup on the school’s natural grass infield, the WT Group made the top of the batting order.
After a 2-year pandemic hiatus, the WT Foundation re-branded its main fundraising event into an all-new format and feel. On September 22, the inaugural ‘Grip It, Rip It, Trace It’ event was held at the Top Tracer Facility located within the Bridges of Poplar Creek Country Club in Hoffman Estates.
