St. Francis will hold a grand opening ceremony of its $4.5 million outdoor athletic complex by officially blessing the just-completed Gacioch Family Athletic Center at 6:30 p.m. May 14.
The athletic center will contain training, officials and coaches' rooms as well as restrooms, concessions and a second-floor hospitality suite and viewing deck. St. Francis' Athletic Hall of Fame also will be in the first floor of the center.
The building structure marks the completion of the second phase of a construction project that started with the installation of a new football field and eight-lane all-weather track surface. During the fall, the school held an official blessing ceremony for the track and football surface, which has since been renamed Polian Family Field.
