After finding the problem, they had to shut the weight room down and move the equipment out in order to repair the floor. Repairing the floor would have costed tens of thousands of dollars as well as loosing several inches in ceiling height. The equipment that could be utilized was moved to a study hall room and set up so the students of MHS could still use it. All of the other equipment was moved into storage and the discussion began, "what would the fate be of the MHS weight room?"
I have to believe that soon after the School Board and other officials found out there was a FB Page created in support of school keeping the weight room, they had no choice but to find a solution. Even as they contemplated closing the weight room forever, it was decided that it just wasn't an option. They utilized a couple of rooms on the basement level at MHS and turned it into a 6,000 square foot weight room that is now going to continue to support the students of MHS.
Moving into a new bigger facility with the same amount of equipment gives Coach Nitka and the school some more space to bring in new equipment and keep growing with the students interest. I have taken it upon myself along with a couple of others to raise some money to supplement those costs. Coach Nitka loves his t-shirts, so Amy Schlosser helped me redesign the POWER "M" and I've designed these shirts that will be sold on Booster.com. They are being sold at a little higher of any other shirt's price, but the remainder of the money will go directly to a fund for the weight room. The more shirts sold, the more money goes to the weight room.
Please pass this along to anyone you'd like. You don't have to be a Muskego Alumni to support and as always, thanks reading and for your support! The links to the shirts are below!
