Grand Opening for Wildcats Activities Center November 26th

Fans will enjoy watching the Wildcats compete in the new 1800-seat gymnasium, which is
surrounded by a walking/ running track on the upper level. A fully modernized weight/fitness room
located on the second level is lined with glass windows overlooking School Street, providing natural
sunlight to the 3300 square-foot space. Adjacent to the fitness area is a 3600 square-foot wrestling
practice room for the Wildcats to call home. The WAC also includes a retail space for fans to
purchase the latest apparel and merchandise, aptly named the C-Store.
 
The WAC is part of the Phase II projects of the facilities master plan adopted by the school board in
2014. District voters overwhelmingly approved a $17 million “no tax increase” bond issue to help
fund the projects, which also include renovations and relocation of the high school art, family &
consumer sciences and industrial tech classrooms; district-wide security/technology and elementary
school energy efficiency improvements; and upgrades to K-12 classroom furniture. All of the Phase II
projects are scheduled for completion by 2021.
 
The district would like to publicly thank all those who played a role in the completion of this project
with a celebration ceremony at 6:45 p.m. between the JV and varsity scrimmages. The boosters will
be serving concessions from their impressive new stand in the lobby and the community is
encouraged to come and tour the new facility. Please join us and get a first-hand look at the WAC as
we officially open its doors to the public and step into a new era in Carlisle activities!
