Over the summer, our beloved main gym will be getting remodeled. Even though the floor looks shiny now, it can only be refurbished and sanded down so many times.

“The last time it was redone was in in the early 2000’s,” said athletic secretary Kathy Mahler, who spoke on the behalf of the athletic office.

Kiefer Specialty Flooring is installing the new floor for $375,207.25.

“The new gym maple wood floor is $375,000 and will take two and a half months to complete. You will have a new graphics mascot on there as well,” said project manager for The Skillman Corporation Chris Muvceski.

Until the remodeling is over with, sports teams who use the main gym for a place to practice in the summer will have to either find a different gym to practice in or use the blue gym. A new and improved gym floor will be fully completed by the beginning of the 2018-2019 school year.
