Chuck Nurek Field House


As an Avondale Alumni and former athlete it is an opportunity to follow one of our local school’s activities.  Avondale School District announced that a dedication ceremony for the newly named Chuck Nurek Field House will be held on Thursday, March 1, 2012. Mr. Nurek served as the Athletic Director at Avondale High School from 1978 to 1999. 

The naming ceremony will take place at approximately 6:30 p.m., immediately following the Avondale boys’ junior varsity basketball game, which begins at 5:00 p.m., and prior to the boys’ varsity basketball game, which begins at 7:00 p.m.  The ceremony is anticipated to run for approximately 30 minutes, with a reception for Mr. Nurek in the Avondale High School media center immediately following.

The school is encouraging the public and Avondale alumni and former athletes to attend to personally extend their good wishes to Mr. Nurek. 

This will be an interesting day in Avondale’s history and might be cool to see some folks we haven’t seen in some time.

Don’t worry, all my records are still in place…that’s right, I don’t think earned any records while at Avondale (they didn’t keep penalty minutes for basketball).
