When the Trojans take the court this season, they could hear the roar of 3,000 fans. That is the seating capacity of Lassiter High School’s new gym. In other words, the Ed-SPLOST-funded facility could seat every Lassiter student and still have room for about 1,000 more fans.
And, there is even more space off the court. The new facility includes two varsity locker rooms for the Lassiter Boys and Girls Basketball and Volleyball teams. There are also two locker rooms for the visiting teams and a practice facility for the Trojan wrestling team.
The Lassiter gym is one of several gymnasiums built for Cobb students in just the past few years. Campbell High School and Walton High School also have new gym facilities as does North Cobb High School and Harrison High School.
Lassiter held a brief ceremony to recognize and thank all the individuals who played a role in getting the school’s new gym built. Construction began in Fall 2018. Following the ceremony, the Lady Trojans took the court for the gym’s debut game against the Walton High School Lady Raiders.
The Lassiter Boys Basketball Team battled their East Cobb rivals in the next game. For game highlights visit www.CobbSports.org.
In 2020, Cobb residents will see the ribbons cut on several more Ed-SPLOST-funded projects including the new Cobb Innovation and Technology Academy, the Clay-Harmony Leland Elementary School, and Kings Springs Replacement School.
