Marion, AL. – Installation of a new basketball court has been completed at Marion Military Institute. Gone is the rubber, all-purpose flooring that was installed when the William R. Ireland Athletic Center was built back in 1991.
Covington Flooring, Inc. installed 12,576 square foot of the Northern Hard Maple from Robbins Sports Surfaces to cover the entire gym surface inside the Athletic Center. The court will feature both basketball and volleyball lines on the main court with partial lines available for auxiliary basketball and volleyball courts on each side. "Covington Flooring did an excellent job on this project; a project that has been a dream of ours for many, many years. I know our basketball coaches and players will appreciate the new playing surface," stated Michelle Ivey, MMI Director of Athletics.
