Ki-Be Gets New Locker Room Thanks To Donations & Volunteers

Posted: Updated:

BENTON CITY, WA - For years at Kiona-Benton City High School the athletes have not had a place to go at halftime, but that's all about to change thanks to some hard working and devoted Ki-Be locals.

"It's been something that's sorely needed for storage space, but the facilities down on the floor here was something that we've needed for a long time," said Rom Castilleja, Superintendent at Ki-Be.

Where a small storage shed used to be now stands a newly constructed athletic facility. It will be the new location for the student athlete locker rooms and storage for athletic equipment.

"We're just so excited for all the kids at Ki-Be," said head coach of the football team Charlie Hobbick. "They deserve this. This city deserves this and there's a lot of amazing people that helped put this on, so it's great."

Before, the athletes had to walk all the way back up to the high school to the locker rooms which took up most of half time during games. The new locker rooms will have plenty of space for players to change, to store equipment and they are even trying to install a projector to watch back game footage on one of the locker room walls.

"I think it's great cause every body's putting their time in and people are volunteering and coming out from everywhere and just it's a great community project," said student football and baseball player Garrett Howell.

Some of the student athletes have been putting in the most volunteer hours at the new facility and their work will last for years to come so other generations of students can enjoy the locker rooms.
