With athletic events happening across campus like the women’s lacrosse game, the Bubble doesn’t seem to be as busy as usual evenings.
Things should pick up later on tonight when intramural volleyball, soccer and football begin.
Not only do Franklin Pierce students utilize The Bubble regularly but community locals come in daily. Front desk attendant Katie Jackson sold eighty dollars worth of day passes last week and not many at all during her four to six o’clock shift this evening.
Jackson said, “Because of the sports teams playing today, there hasn’t been many people here at the gym today, there weren’t many locals either.” Early this morning Field Hockey, Tennis, and baseball had practice in the bubble.
There were a few young high school basketball players in the bubble tonight. “It’s really hard finding local gyms to practice in around the area, so we come here everyday,” said high schooler Rob O’Brien. They compete for an AAU team by the name of Metro Boston.
O’Brien’s teammate Kyle Carland said, ”We always ask our principal if we can get the keys to the gym but he’s worried about vandalism so it’s easier that we just come practice here.”
