Allie Morrison Wrestling Training Room dedicated

Hundreds of people attended the grand opening of the Marshalltown HIgh School Roundhouse Phase II project on March 30.

The event included several speakers and tours of the new facility which features an auxiliary gym and the dedication of the new Allie Morrison Wrestling Training Room.

Hosted by Marshalltown Schools Superintendent Dr. Theron Schutte, the event also featured several speakers associated with the project with many former wrestlers and wrestling coaches in attendance.

MHS wrestling coach Mike Mann got emotional as he explained that the wrestling program finally has a permanent home.

“I guess I’m at the right place at the right time,” Mann said.

The near $7 million project was boosted as a total of $2.7 million was raised privately for the project. The project was led by general contractor Ball Team and FEH Architects.

Fundraising chairs Cynthia Ragland, Gary Schaudt and Heather Van Buren were recognized at the event as well as Karn Gregoire of the Martha-Ellen Tye Foundation, which donated $1 million to the project.
