Logan board takes steps toward added athletic facilities at LCHS

A proposed additional athletic facility on the grounds of Logan County High School came closer to being a reality at a special called meeting of the board of education Thursday. The board approved a project application and hired a Hopkinsville-based architectural firm to design the 27,000-square foot structure. It will be designed as a home for archery and marching band practices along with locker rooms and restrooms. Superintendent Paul Mullins told the Daily News that track and cross country facilities could also be added soon. Archery does not have a home of its own, and the band has been practicing on football and soccer areas. The original track, which surrounds the football field, hasn't been usable for several years. The cross country track, which was one of the best in the region, was lost when construction began last year on the technology center.
