Moravian Academy Lions Roar For New Gym

Having just won their third straight District 11 Class AA boys tennis title, Moravian Academy's Lions are roaring. Although not commonly thought of as a jock school, 80% of its student body participates on at least one team in soccer, tennis, golf, cross country, field hockey, basketball, swimming, softball, baseball, and lacrosse. And Bill Stank, Moravian Academy's Director of Campus Facilities, told Bethlehem Township Commissioners at their May 16 meeting that the school would like to upgrade its associate membership with PIAA District 11's Colonial League.

Stank and Attorney Blake Marles reviewed sketch plans for the first major expansion of Moravian Academy's athletic facilities since Walter Hall was constructed in 1962. A new, 40,000 sq. ft. gym is being proposed on the 66-acre campus, located off Green Pond Road, along with a 70-car parking lot.

According to Stank, an extra gym will enable multiple practices, as well as making indoor batting cages possible.

Commissioners not only endorsed the proposal, but suggested that the preliminary and final plan be considered simultaneously.
