Clarksville High School’s Metheny Field at Whitson Morgan Stadium has served its community for 45 years, and throughout that time school leaders have given back to the community by continuously maintaining and improving the facility. After installing a new turf field in 2016, the school began looking into new stadium lighting that would transform the atmosphere for the many athletic events and community gatherings held there. Clarksville hadn’t updated its lighting since the field was first built and needed a reliable system with new support structures to increase light levels and minimize glare and light spill.
Clarksville researched several lighting manufacturers and interviewed a number of schools with newer systems to ensure they would get the best possible solution. After receiving a great deal of support during the planning stages and learning of the company’s vast experience in the industry, they turned to Musco and its Total Light Control—TLC for LED™ system. The new lighting’s complete system design with galvanized steel poles and precast concrete bases ensure long-term reliability. Musco’s custom optics and factory-aiming deliver more unform distribution with improved light levels, while its patented visoring around the fixtures minimizes glare and spill from affecting drivers along the US-40 freeway.
