Connersville High School athletic director Brent Duncan spoke current projects during the Connersville Kiwanis Club meeting on Wednesday.

The new fieldhouse, now called a student activity center, should greatly enhance availability of athletic facilities for the Spartans, he said. High school teams will be able to practice and play there, freeing up space at the middle school and some elementary schools. It will have three basketball courts, one with a wooden floor and the other two with tile flooring that can be used for practice and games in other sports as well. The building is a little behind schedule but should still be complete within the first few months of the coming year. He is working on a proposal to create a CHS Athletic Hall of Fame. CHS will host a basketball sectional this year. 

The club will have a board meeting at noon Wednesday at the Pizza Place.
