(La Porte County, IN) - Two La Porte area schools are undergoing major renovations to their sports facilities this summer.
Michigan City High Schools are working on several upgrades. After replacing the turf at Ames Field in the spring, a half-million dollar project, the track will be replaced later this summer. Set to begin soon is a $100,000 weight room improvement.
Also, the Wolves’ Den bleachers will be replaced in July. Although the seating will be new and improved, it will be diminished by over 1,000 seats, knocking the gym out of the top 10 biggest gyms in Indiana.
Out at New Prairie, a field house is being constructed for the football and track teams.
The building, adjacent to Amzie Miller Field, will include locker rooms, a training room, and storage. Previously, the cougars met in part of a pole barn during games, while opposing teams often huddled in an end zone.
