Fighting LancersThis Fighting Lancers banner has hung in the gym for decades. The Lancers mascot stopped being used for high school sports in 1988, and was retired completely in 2007.

The GymThe gym was still in great shape, considering it was about 50 years old. It would have been great if it could hvae been saved and used as a community gym, but that wasn't possible.
