+ St. Stephens Falcons unveil new field house
St. Stephen’s Episcopal School unveiled its new Falcon Field House during an open house and ribbon-cutting ceremony May 16.
The Field House is the final phase of the Moore Athletic Complex at Turner Fields. The roughly 7,000-square-foot Field House is home to a weight room, training room, whirlpool and hot tubs, a football locker room, boys and girls showers, coaches offices and a laundry room.
The Field House concludes the $5 million campaign that began fundraising and construction of the state-of-the-art athletic facility, Moore Athletic Complex at Turner Fields, which hosts football, track and field, soccer, lacrosse, baseball, softball, tennis and cheerleading events.
“The new Falcon Field House is the ‘icing on the cake’ to our new Moore Athletic Complex at Turner Fields,” Head of School Dr. Jan Pullen says. “Our student-athletes will be able to have great sports conditioning and care in this wonderful space. Thanks to the board and those in the St. Stephen’s community that made this latest facility a reality.”
