Open house lets people climb into the Panther's Den

WEST SALEM, Wis. (WKBT) - After a little more than two years, the Panther Den in West Salem is ready for visitors. The School district's new sports facility had an open house Saturday.

The Panther Den's gymnastics training facility was where West Salem's co-op gymnastics team practiced as they advanced to state competition.

It also makes West Salem High School the third school in Wisconsin to have their own hockey rink. 

The facility not only benefits students, but the whole community as well.

"Now we have a facility that we can utilize as a whole. We are also looking to be able to make this facility available for other events, whether it's expo's, whether it's boat shows or what other items anyone can come up with," said West Salem School Board member Ken Schlimgen.

The Panther Den can also be used for P.E. activities, and offers space for several other sports programs to practice well.
