Civic Auditorium on the Hoosier Hysteria Ballot

(La Porte, IN) - Three local high school gymnasiums are in the running for the best place to watch a basketball game in Indiana.  One is the Civic Auditorium in La Porte.


The Slicers play their home games at La Porte High School, but Slicers home games several decades ago were at the Civic Auditorium.  In recent years, a few Slicers home games have been played at the near century old building.


The rankings will be decided by people voting online.  Mayor Tom Dermody posted the gymnasiums in the running on his Facebook page to get people involved. 


Dermody, who played for the Slicers in the 1980’s, plays in the adult leagues now at the Civic Auditorium.  He wishes he would have had that chance during his high school days, saying the Civic Auditorium is what “Hoosier Hysteria is all about.”


People can vote daily until April 1 at visitindiana.com (click here to vote).  There are 68 high school gymnasiums on the voting list.  The two other local ones are the Wolves Den in Michigan City and the Tiger Den in LaCrosse.
