The upgrades continue for Morgantown High’s athletic facilities at Pony Lewis Field as the Mohigans unveiled the most recent addition, a brand multipurpose building that will house home and visiting locker rooms for football, soccer and lacrosse.
“It’s long overdue,” said Morgantown head football coach John Bowers. “We have some of the best student athletes in the state and they deserve a nice locker room. It’s a beautiful facility to call their own and they’re very blessed in this area to have this.”
There’s also plenty of more room in the new the facility as it totals 130 lockers for the Mohigans.
“The lockers are state of the art, we have a nice little coaches office, a huge equipment room that can house all of our needs,” Bowers said. “It’s adequate for the program that we try to run. We take football, and athletics in general, very seriously here at Morgantown High. It’s so nice that our kids have a place that mirrors that.”
The old locker room facilities Morgantown had been using were built back in 1988. In all, it’s part of a renovating process that, over the past couple of years, has included new field turf, new home bleachers and new lighting to Pony Lewis Field.
“If there’s a better facility in the state, I would like to see it,” Bowers said. “This is pretty state of the art, it’s pretty nice and we’re very, very blessed.”
