Locker rooms are being renovated at Abernethy Center

SALISBURY — Work continues in Catawba’s Abernethy Physical Education Center. Since renovations in the Goodman Gymnasium were completed during summer 2015, work has begun on the lower level of the facility to renovate the locker rooms for men’s and women’s basketball and volleyball.

The frame work for new walls in the locker rooms is up and electrical installation has begun. The project is scheduled to be completed by the end of the summer.

The renovations include a redesign of the section that is home to the volleyball and women’s basketball teams. The existing restroom will be reconfigured for use by the public, while the teams will get new restroom and shower facilities.

The men’s basketball locker room and the section currently used by men’s swimming will also be redesigned and will include two separate locker room facilities with new separate shower and bathroom facilities. All locker rooms will have new carpeting along with new lighting. A total of 72 new lockers will be installed, 18 for each locker room.

The new lockers were chosen are from All Wood Locker Company in Ohio. These 2-foot-wide by 7-foot-tall lockers with a dark oak finish feature a custom-design Catawba “C and feather” athletics logo engraved in the lock box of each locker. The All Wood Locker Company has completed custom locker projects for other institutions such as Wake Forest, UNC Pembroke and Francis Marion.

Alumni and friends of the college have the opportunity to leave a lasting legacy and be a part of a great tradition by sponsoring a locker in the remodeled Abernethy Physical Education Center. The cost of a named locker sponsorship is $1,500, and all gifts may be paid over a three-year pledge period. For questions about the project, contact Catawba Athletic Director Larry Leckonby at lleckonb14@catawba.edu.

Pledge forms for the project are available through Leckonby or the Catawba Development Office or can be downloaded and printed from the Catawba website at www.catawba.edu/lockersupport.
