West Potomac High School has opened a new, state-of-the-art strength and conditioning facility.

The school held a ribbon-cutting ceremony for the new facility on Friday, attended by school officials, students, members of the Wolverine Athletic Booster Club (WABC), community sponsors and school board member Karen Corbett Sanders.

The $85,000 facility was paid for by the booster club, which raised funds through Christmas tree sales, concession sales at home games, car washes and local business sponsorships.

The gym features “an array of weight racks, free weights, dumbbells, barbells and dynamic training equipment” that compares favorably to some college-level facilities, according to a booster club press release.

Local business sponsors who contributed to facility include Sandy McMaster of McMaster Real Estate, Jeff and Karen Lerner of Farmers Insurance and John Holzworth of Painters Touch.

The WABC is currently raising money for a future to the upgrade the school’s gymnasium, also known as “The Wolverdome.”
