Wylie ISD Installs EpiQ Running Track Systems

Wylie ISD contracted Hellas for $1.6 million to install new epiQ TRACKS® running track systems at Frank McMillan and Cooper Junior Highs starting June 4th while converting Jerry Shaffer Stadium’s natural grass field at Burnett Junior High to Matrix® Synthetic Turf which started June 9th. The Wylie ISD Indoor Facility utilized by all sports teams year round, also received Matrix® Turf and was completed this past March.


Frank McMillan and Cooper Junior High Schools will receive renovation of their running tracks and then resurfacing with epiQ TRACKS® S200 running track system. This paved-in-place running track sport surface is comprised of a bottom layer of polyurethane bound rubber granules topped with a spray-applied coat of one or two-component polyurethane and EPDM granules. Hellas manufactures the highest quality green materials for their running tracks, proven to produce durable, predictable, and resilient surfaces.

Shaffer Stadium at Burnett Junior High School will receive full construction to convert their natural grass field to Matrix® Turf with a REALFILL® infill system. The benefits will be increased use of the field with less maintenance. The groundbreaking was June 9th and completion will be in August before football season begins.

Wylie ISD Indoor Facility had the existing turf replaced with Matrix® Turf and REALFILL® infill. Hellas began this project on March 4th and completed it on March 16th taking only twelve days to finish.
