Gym A will be used for the first in nearly a year on January 3rd when the varsity will shootaround prior to their game at Ritenour at 7:00. Gym A was closed in early March of 2023 as the old floor was torn out, over the summer workers completed nearly 90% of the new floor when storms in the area caused the roof to leak and thus the new floor had to be torn out and then replaced again. In this time the high school has practiced in Gym C, at South Middle, Southwest Middle and St. Joseph Manchester church. We are looking forward to being back in our home!
The Ritenour game will be Live Streamed on the Ritenour YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/@ritenouractivities433
