Hononegah High School readies for grand opening of new Fieldhouse


The new Fieldhouse at Hononegah High School, which replaces the collapsed Athletic Dome, is set to open Friday, April 5th.

The Fieldhouse has over 2,500 bleacher seats, state-of-the-art audio equipment, new floor and gym equipment, and “visual effects that demonstrate Hononegah pride.”

The Athletic Dome deflated during a winter ice storm back on December 28th, 2015.

“The loss of the dome was a challenge for our administration, staff, students and the public. We are grateful to the community for its support in allowing the construction of this much-needed addition to our campus. The field house will be a source of pride for the whole Hononegah area for generations to come,” David Kurlinkus, School Board President, said in a statement.

ESPN SportsCenter Anchor and Hononegah High alumni, Nicole Briscoe, will be present for the grand opening, which will be held at 10 a.m. on April 5th, followed by a spirit assembly, performances by the dance and cheer squads, a 3-on-3 basketball tournament, and more.
