SIOUX FALLS, S.D. – Sept. 20 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — Southern Bleacher Company, based in Graham, Texas, is pleased to announce that, in conjunction with architectural firm Miller Sellers Heroux, Southern Bleacher recently completed its portion of the impressive Sanford Health Sports Complex that includes the 2006 NAIA National Champion Cougar’s football complex.

Caption: Sanford Health Sports ComplexThanks in part to a generous donation of land and support from the Fellowship of Christian Athletes and Sioux Falls Christian Schools, the new facility was completed in time for the Saturday, September 1st 2007 season kickoff against Dana College.

An integral player in the construction contract, Southern Bleacher manufactured and installed the patented Interlock 2000 Decking System at Sanford Health Sport Complex’s newly constructed Bob Young Field. The impressive structure boasts a lower section with 9 rows x 400′ sporting black riserboards and purple backrests. The upper section compliments the lower with 11 rows x 178′ featuring black risers and stadium chairs with gray seat pans and purple backs.

As a crowning touch, Southern Bleacher also installed their architectural Vertical Rail System. The Vertical Rail System is a smart alternative to traditional chain link guard rail because, in addition to being safer than traditional chain link, it offers a clean, attractive and stylish contrast to the horizontal lines of the decking.

“From the onset, the Southern Bleacher team shared in The University of Sioux Falls vision that the Sanford Health Sports Complex, and specifically Bob Young Field, will usher in a new era of excellence,” stated Garrett Pettus. “Now, thousands of USF faithful can sit comfortably with impressive vantage points and enjoy the fruits of the USF Cougars’ hard work and cheer them on to another NAIA championship.”

Southern Bleacher Company is a family owned and operated company that takes pride in their commitment to excellence.
