Washington High School To Build New Field House

         WASHINGTON—Washington High School will be adding to its facilities by building a new field house, according to a report in the Washington Daily News.

         The project has been years in the making, but the school is preparing to break ground in September on a field house of 4,020 square feet that will be used for a number of different sports.

         Support from the boosters club, the Washington Athletic Club, as well as the county commissioners will help to make it possible.

         The facility was designed by John McGahey of McGahey Design, a firm based in Garner. McGahey, a graduate of Washington, put the plans together this summer and did so free of charge. The blueprint depicts a sizable weight room, home and visiting locker rooms, two restrooms, office and storage space and a room for the athletic trainer. Two glass doors in the front of the building will open up to the southeast end zone behind the goal post.

       Bids for various parts of the project will take place in late August and after the proposals have been selected, the final price tag of the project will be calculated.
