Lady Crusaders practice in newly renovated gymnasium

HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - The women's basketball team has been practicing this week in their newly renovated Clinton Gymnasium.

The Clinton Gymnasium was heavily damaged in the tornado that swept through the area in January. Both the women's and men's basketball team has relied on a schedule using other gyms to play ball.

Now, with renovations complete, the Crusaders can boast of their state-of-the-art facility, which includes a new floor and other improvements to the building.

Women's Basketball Head Coach Tracy English said the facility is really impressive.

"They've replaced everything, the place looks great and we're just really excited to be back in here." English said. "We've got a home game next week, that's going to be fun so we've had two days of practice in here, it's like being home."

The Lady Crusaders will host the Xavier Gold Nuggets Tuesday with a double-header starting at 5:30 p.m. in the Clinton Gymnasium.
