The Health and Human Performance Complex, epicenter of McNeese State’s athletics facilities, suffered significant damage during Hurricane Laura last year.
The $45 million facility opened in 2018 and is home to McNeese State’s basketball teams, women’s volleyball team, an athletic training center, classrooms, and administrative offices.
LEMOINE has been on-site providing remediation and reconstruction of the facility which was left with ankle-deep water and numerous holes in the ceiling. Despite an influx of rain over the past several months, prompting additional local flooding, the $20+ million repair project is on track for December completion.
“I feel very confident that we will be playing our league games on campus,” Athletic Director Heath Schroyer told The American Press. “I get reports every Friday from The Lemoine Company and things are looking better and better each week.”
McNeese played their last season 3 miles away in their former longtime home, Burton Coliseum.
“I think they are doing a great job and setting a great pace,” Schroyer said. “I never would have thought we could be back playing our conference games in the arena this year.”
