San Marcos gym and court to honor Lee, Halleck

On Tuesday night, the Santa Barbara School Board approved naming the San Marcos High School Gymnasium and Court as Maury Halleck Gymnasium and Jon Lee Court.

Principal Norm Clevenger, Athletic Director Abe Jahadhmy, former Royals Sal Rodriguez (community Leader and Hall-of-Famer), Todd Rogers (NCAA All American, 2008 Olympic Gold Medalist) and Santa Barbara Teachers Association President Layne Wheeler spoke on behalf of the two legendary men.

San Marcos High School is planning a festive weekend on Friday and Saturday January 22 and 23 in honor of Halleck and Lee. The festivities will be highlighted by a dinner party celebration on Saturday night January 23 from 6-10 p.m. at The Carriage Museum.

The Event is sponsored by The San Marcos Athletic Booster Club, and there will also be a special presentation by Tim Vom Steeg and Rich Ridgway on the joint Fundraising effort by San Marcos and Santa Barbara Soccer Club for a synthetic Turf Field at Valley Stadium — dubbed “The Field Of of Champions.”

Over 250 people from all over the country are expected to attend the event.
