After a long wait this fall, the East Gymasium at Pella High School is ready to host competition. Athletic Director Dale Otte says the newly replaced gym floor features a better humidity control system below the wood, which is meant to prevent problems like what happened this summer after heavy rains flooded the East Gym.
This new system gives the floor a bit more spring as well. Otte says they’re looking forward to showcasing the new floor to fans during the upcoming basketball season. The first home basketball game on the new floor will be November 28th, when the Pella girls host Williamsburg.
