Moline High School Dedicates New Phys.Ed. Facility
Even though it's been in use since last January, the new physical education facility at Moline high school will be dedicated Wednesday night.
The school district spent 14 million dollars to add a large, modern weight room, a new room for wrestling, plus offices, locker rooms, and a field house featuring a six lane 200-meter track, four basketball courts, and four batting cages.
Athletic Director Dick Knar says it's not just more space, but phys-ed classes will be improved.
"What they had to do before for their curriculum, things like that, was, alright this is the space we have, what can we do with it? Now they are thinking at a different level; we have all these things now, what can we do with it? It just make it so much better."
School officials say the new physical education facilities allow more space for classses and practices and no need to schedule practices at night.
The dedication and ribbon cutting are scheduled for 5:30 Wednesday night, with an open house afterwards.
