Hononegah Community high school reveals new field house

ROCKFORD, Ill (WIFR)--- It was definitely an exciting day for not only the students but also the community. It's been more than four years since the dome collapsed and finally, a new field house will revive spring sports.

Over time the need for a new space became evident and the community voted on a referendum two years ago to fund the field house.

The space is equipped with a new track, weights, batting cages and a golfing station.

"We're going to try and make it as accessible to the community as we can because they supported us and I think it's only fair to give back to them," says Hononegah school board president, Dave Kurlinkus.

A decade's wall was also revealed showcasing stories of Hononegah athletes dating back to the 1920s.
