A nice improvement to the cozy confines of Detrick Gym. Next let's get rid of those awful NEC school "banners" :)

It looks great next to all those exposed pipes and cables and curtain rods.

I’m trying to be optimistic and I’m sure it’s an improvement but there is only so much lipstick you can put on a pig.

Now if only we could build a nice and cozy 3500 seat arena around the scoreboard

Dreams of playing in the new, state-of-the-art ElmerDome have faded.

Take THAT Mount Saint Mary's and Bryant!

I"m sure it's nice and I'm sure it's an improvement over the old but unless its a new field house....sigh...

Are we now the only high school gym left in the conference aside from SFNY? Big mistake not making the new rec center a field house and then renovating Detrick to be a rec center. Wasted all that space.

Totally agree. Someone else suggested that very same thing to me and it made a ton of sense.

The lower floor of Detrick already has a weight training center and sports med facilities so why didn’t they expand on that and, as you sad, construct a field house?

One thing that photo showed was that precious little, if anything, is being done to renovate the gym.
