The Bethel board's approval of a major addition to the Thresher Sports Complex begins the public phase of a capital campaign to build a football locker room after nearly four years of “quiet” work by athletics and advancement staff.

The facility will also have features that serve each of the 19 varsity sports in which Bethel competes.

The current locker room, in the basement of Goering Hall on the north side of campus, has been subject to flooding and water damage from groundwater seepage – “three times over the past four years,” said Tony Hoops, athletic director.
