BH-BL teams affected by construction

"We hope to be in the pool by Oct. 1, but we're taking it week by week," McGuire said.

Girls swim team coach Matt Turner said the changes haven't affected his team at all. He said if anything the girls have bonded over a shared annoyance. Turner added he gives the administration a lot of credit for dealing with the rescheduling worries. The district will provide transportation for the team to their practice destination once school starts.

For the rest of the teams, McGuire said if they were scheduled to be home, they are now scheduled to be away until the start of school.

McGuire said the changes have had no real effect on the sports teams, but if the teams still have to practice off site once modified and freshman teams start, it will become a problem.

"It could get really confined with using one facility. Some teams may have to practice until 10 p.m.," he said.

McGuire said he is confident that once school starts, teams will be allowed to practice at the high school. Then, it just becomes an issue of juggling time slots and deciding what team will practice where.

McGuire is beginning to look ahead to the problem with storage. The fitness equipment is now in the wrestling room and around the school. Soccer coaches have been carrying balls in their trunks.

"It's been a little inconvenient, but we've been dealing with it, and everyone has been very pleased," he said.
