Mustang High School, Event Center
The $11 million Mustang Event Center, completed in 2015, is a valuable addition to the recently reconstructed Mustang High School campus. Replacing an aging and outgrown basketball gym, the Event Center provides a multiuse venue capable of supporting competitive basketball, wrestling and volleyball, as well as serving as a space for a multitude of other events.

Strategically placed on the campus so that the competition tennis courts are directly to the south of the building, the Event Center provides locker rooms and offices for these teams as well. The building has an arena with more than 2,000 seats, AV connections and a superior sound system.
The exterior design was created to blend with the design of the new high school by using brick veneer, standing seam metal roofing and cast stone columns at the entry, while also maintaining elements of the other athletic facilities on campus, which use corrugated metal panels with a split-face masonry base.
