Barton College Tennis Complex Partially Destroyed by Fire

February 9, 2005 10:23 AM

The building at the Barton College Tennis Complex that housed the office of head coach Marc Walters, several bathroom/changing rooms and a storage area for equipment was destroyed by a fire Saturday night. Barton College is located in Wilson, NC.

The cause of the fire is unknown at this time. New tennis uniforms and warm-up outfits, lots of tennis rackets, shoes and balls, as well as stringing equipment and many photos and trophies were among the items lost.

Due to the tragedy, Coach Walters' temporary office will be in the Wilson Gymasium, where he will share space with Lynn Houchins, Barton Athletics Administrative Assistant.

Coach Walters can now be reached by phone at 252-399-6514.
