January 15 will go down as one of the grandest days in Proviso District 209 memory. A bold and comprehensive masterplan specifically to the Proviso West High School Fieldhouse came to fruition at a special re-dedication ceremony.
In June 2018, school board members approved funding to completely renovate the 50+ year old facility. At a cost that exceeded 1.5 million dollars, a new 200m track surface with 42" lanes was installed, new lighting, new electrical wiring including wireless internet capability, a new sound system, interior facility paint job, soon to be digital scoreboard with live action play, and improved logistics for fans and athletics.
Proviso West Athletic Director Calvin Davis characterized the celebration as a great day for all of District 209 student-athletes that encompasses Proviso East and West High Schools. In addition, the improvements to the field house put the Proviso at the top of the food chain in terms of facilities in the state.
