CASTLETON, Vt.-- Add Castleton State College to the list of communities affected by last month's Tropical Storm Irene. The bottom floor of the Spartans Athletic Complex was overtaken by flood waters. After bursting through the doors of the building, the water did it's damage in just under an hour. Most of the sports equipment and weight machines have to be replaced. The Football Team's locker room was completely destroyed.
The following day, the Spartans Football players and coaches along with other members of the community helped with the clean-up. The Castleton players say the experience brought them closer together. The Athletic Department hopes to have the team's locker room ready to go by the home opener on Saturday, September 24th.
