Richmond-Burton football field honored by Pioneer

Richmond-Burton’s grounds crew of Rich Holtz and Tom Miller have been recognized by Pioneer Athletics as a winner of its 2013 Fields of Excellence Award.

R-B will receive a certificate of recognition it can display at its athletic stadium, which is the field that Pioneer honored. Pioneer also might use the winning field picture in upcoming publications or on its annual calendar.

The Field of Excellence Award Program honors outstanding athletic fields and the crews who diligently maintain them. The program was established in 1997.

R-B athletic director Pat Elder said Holtz and Miller sent pictures of their field to Pioneer for its consideration for the award.
