|After 47 years of use, the Carroll College PE Center has installed a new hardwood gym floor. “This floor is going to benefit our student-athletes for years to come,” said Athletic Director Charlie Gross. “It isn’t a luxury, it is functional and it is something that will serve Carroll College for a long time. We are thrilled to get the latest technology in flooring.”|
The floor design shows off aspects of a recent athletics brand enhancement, including the use of a new Carroll Bold font on the baselines and the introduction of a new Halo mascot icon in the keys with the most prominent element on the floor being the large C-Halo logo that extends 36 feet across the center line of the court.
