New gym at Chaffey to open Wednesday

The new gymnasium at Chaffey College will be unveiled on Wednesday as the Panthers host Victor Valley College in a men’s and women’s basketball doubleheader that will tip off at 5 p.m.

School officials had hoped to have the new facility available last month but it didn’t quite happen. The old facility is being closed down for renovation but when it is open will give the school more flexability in scheduling, not just for its competing teams, but physical education classes as well. 

Athletic director Carl Beach said formal dedication festivities will be held in conjunction with the Feb. 19 game against Mt. San Jacinto.
