The University of Northern Iowa plans to build a new football team meeting room. Construction on the project, which is funded by private donations, is expected to begin this winter, and be completed in the fall of 2021. The space will primarily serve the UNI football program as a team meeting room, but will also be made available for studying and classroom space. — UNIPanthers.com

The University of Hawai’i at Hilo began physical work on a new soccer field, softball field and multipurpose building last week. The work, expected to total $4.2 million in costs, will include new synthetic turf playing surfaces for the soccer field and softball outfield, a state-of-the-art drainage system for both facilities, and the multipurpose building which will provide restroom facilities, storage and concessions. The project is expected to be completed in September of 2021. — Hawaii.edu 

Gar-Field and Woodbridge High Schools in Virginia are each set to add auxiliary gymnasiums to their athletics facilities. The schools, which have the same layout, are set to add new gyms of the same size, but there will be some differences in how the spaces are used. Gar-Field will have two basketball courts connected lengthwise with a divider, while Woodbridge will have one basketball court and a section with a batting cage and space for other programs. Eventually, Woodbridge will use space for a training center with a weight room and cardio equipment, as well as turf training lanes. — Inside NOVA
