“Over the years Thayer High School has been saving money in the district funds for a new weight room,” said THS superintendent, Mrs. Tonya Woods. The new addition is a metal structured building and is much bigger than the old facility. “The new wight room is 2500 square feet and is just east of the high school,” stated Mr. Marc Pitts, THS principal.

Blake Allen, a former THS graduate who is now a coach stated, “More space allows newer and more equipment so that the athletes here at THS will greatly benefit for years to come.”

“The girls’ basketball team just started a weightlifting class last year, so we were only in the old one for a year,” said Julie Stone, THS junior. Stone said she couldn’t imagine how happy all the guys were to get the new weight room.

Coach Cecil Meyer, the girls’ basketball coach said, “I believe the new weight room will be a major advantage for our programs. Now, with the added space and new equipment we can get more done with the time we have.”

According to Coach Billy Webber, “Every hour of the day the weight room is used.  There are over 100 kids in weights and they all have an opinion on the new weight room.”

“We are already enjoying the new weight room and it is not even completely finished,” said Austin Bowers, THS senior. 

Jalen Andrews, THS senior said, “It is good to be in a weight room with more room and that has an all around better environment to lift in.”

Nakota Edwards, THS senior said, “I honestly think this is the best weight room because you have more room to move and you have more space to do your workout. The other room was too small and I’m glad to have the new weight room.”

“The new weight room will give us more space to better ourselves when we lift. We have more room and a better atmosphere. I’m hoping we get some new weights to go with it soon,” Jace Matteson, THS junior said.

“We love our new weight room and can’t wait to see the results when it’s completely finished and all of the new equipment is in place,” said Coach Webber.
