Jones: New school and gym a sight to see...
By Robert Przybylo
Jones athletic director Dave Martin had warned me about it. Jones senior Micah Thompson show more emotion describing it than anything else I’ve ever talked to him about.
But still, until you see the Jones gym/commons area in person, you cannot fully comprehend how great it is for the school and community.
The Stevens-Chase Center opened this fall, and it is a thing of beauty. The home side has a lower and upper level of bleachers, while the visitors side has a lower level. There is a track that goes all the way around the gym in between the levels.
The scoreboard is one of those that helps folks like yours truly by having the points for all players in the game at that particular time. The Longhorn logo takes up a good chunk of center court. Really nice place.
But think the outside/commons area is a bigger draw. Talking with Jones principal Carl Johnson, he said Prom attendance had been down the recent years. With that commons area, boom, that’s gone.
