Ribbon Cutting at CCC


Colby Community College is planning a ribbon cutting for the Big Blue Barn project at 4:00 p.m. on Thursday, January 16th.


After much anticipation, Colby Community College will open the Big Blue Barn athletics
training facility with a ribbon-cutting ceremony at 4 p.m. Former Trojan All-American
wrestler, two-time Olympian, and world champion mixed martial arts fighter Daniel
Cormier will be the featured speaker. Also taking the podium will be current head
baseball coach Ryan Carter, who has more wins than any coach in school history with
628.The 18,000 square-foot facility features a wrestling room, weight room, locker
room, a track around the perimeter, and a multi-purpose turfed area with drop-down
batting cages.
Until now, CCC was the only community college in Kansas without on-campus athletic
training facilities. Grants and private donations funded the $1.692 million project.
