SIOUX CITY, Iowa (KCAU) –Students at Bishop Heelan High School will be playing in their new gym for the very first time. The first game comes after a ribbon-cutting earlier Tuesday.
The parish started raising money 13 years ago in hopes of building the new field house. It finally reached its goal of raising $32 million.
The field house has 1,600 seats, air conditioning, six basketball hoops, an indoor track, and locker rooms.
“The biggest thing for me really from a day-to-day operation is no more crossing the street to go to P.E. class. We’re all in a campus. It gives us longer instruction and more opportunities for our students with the running track and space,” Bishop Heelan Principal Chris Bork said.
