Moore gym still an issue

MOORE — For six months coach Tim Gray has been without a home. His Moore High girls basketball team have been displaced from the schools gymnasium and they do not know when they will be allowed back in.

“We were told the beginning of school or maybe a couple of weeks into the school year,” Gray said. “Then we heard through the grapevine maybe Oct. 1st, then we were told Nov. 1st, last we heard there really is no set completion date. So we will just do our best.”

The gymnasium at Moore has been under renovation since the end of May as a new air condition was installed. That entailed tearing out the entire ceiling and closing down the gym to all activities.

“There have been a couple of different dates but anyone that knows construction and remodeling understands dates are just that. We want our gym and schedule to be normal again,” MHS boys coach Aaron Howell said. “But I know Moore Public Schools is going to make sure we are safe and everything is done correctly. I am in full appreciation of that.”

The wrestling team and volleyball teams have also had their season’s disrupted as work has progressed throughout the year.

Gray and Howell have had a difficult time getting their teams ready for the upcoming prep seasons without knowing where they will be practicing. But because two coaches have worked together, it’s made the situation a little easier.

“Coach Howell has been extremely gracious and giving,” Gray said. “We have been able to work out a schedule that lets both of us utilize what we have. We may have to share time in a gym or weight room, but it has worked out. I think the situation we were dealt, is just one of those things. You just do the best with what you have where you are at.”
