It was a nice 30-minute ceremony featuring several guest speakers. I thought it was a really nice touch for men’s athletic director Randy Allen to thank all of the parents in the HP Sports Club, which donated $1 million to the project, whose kids will never get to use the center because they are already out of school.
Funny moment, too. With the fans not running, presumably because they would have been too loud, it was pretty warm in the center. But they cranked up about 45 seconds after the ceremony was over.
The open house for the center is from 4:30-6 this afternoon. The Scots will battle Rockwall in their District 10-4A football opener at 7:30 at Highlander Stadium.
