A new sports facility is coming to PC’s campus in spring of 2019. The idea for a new sports facility began over one year ago. “A donor contacted me about his passion for Christian education and his desire to improve our facilities for the betterment of our programs and the entire school,” athletic director Dan Branderhorst said.

There has been a need for a more efficient space for athletes. “We have a number of teams and programs who need a space to practice during the fall, winter and spring when weather does not cooperate,” Branderhorst said. “This space will be terrific for our athletic teams including baseball, softball and many others. It will also be an important space for our Shine drill team, cheerleaders and the marching band.”

The building will be constructed on the east side of PC’s campus, directly east of the current field house and concession stand building. According to Branderhorst, contractors have not been named yet, because they are still working through those details, but they hope for the facility to be ready for use by next December.
