Student sat Andalusia High School now have a new place to play sports and learn... a state of the art P.E. facility is now ready after over a year of construction.

CBS 8 spoke with superintendant, Ted Watson, who says it's vital to have more space to do activities -- especially with the 7th and 8th grade Andalusia Middle School students who will be joining the high school in fall of 2014.

Andalusia High School will be holding a ribbon cutting and dedication ceremony this Thursday at 5:30 p.m. in front of the athletic facility.

 

 

What used to be Andalusia High School's PE facility was described as old, rundown and overcrowded -- but now, that's a thing of the past. The Andalusia High School community has waited anxiously to welcome a new sports complex onto their campus. Until now, Andalusia High's athletics have been limited due to space, but with final touches being made on their $2.5 million PE facility, the Bulldogs are happy to show it off.

"I mean this one is so much more advanced with this day and age and it can be used for so many things. Like we use it for so many sports like pretty much everything in the school system," Said AHS junior, Will Harrison.

It's a 30,000 sq. ft. facility, complete with a weightroom, offices, classrooms, locker rooms, and a 50 yard indoor practice field made of turf.

"Anytime you go from something that's been here since 1963 to something that's modern and new, I mean, it just boosts the moral of the team, the kids. They always want to come use it," Said P.E. teacher and football coach, Marshall Locke.
