School to build first athletic complex
One Union County school will have a chance to build a football field for the first time in 2011. Earlier this year, Metrolina Christian Academy entered a competition sponsored by Clorox to win funding to help find a place for their athletic teams to play. Metrolina currently fields 26 teams in 11 sports, but has to borrow facilities from other schools and churches, in order to play. On Tuesday, Dec. 7, Metrolina got word they had won $50,000, to go towards building a football field. The funding was part of $110,000 given out by Clorox to school programs across the nation. Metrolina won out of a field of 1,600 nominated schools, from 1.6 million public votes.
