'Vliet construction ongoing, but no more Mardigan Court?

One of our news reporters, Danielle Sanzone, and a photographer, Mike McMahon, dropped by the Watervliet Junior-Senior High School Thursday to check up on the progress of the construction projects, which include refurbished tennis courts (above) and a new gymnasium (below).

Apparently, the new basketball court, which is set to open in January 2011 or so, depending on the construction schedule, will not be named after Watervliet's legendary longtime head coach George Mardigan. Click here to read about all of his accomplishments, which include a career record of 546-169 and a New York State Federation Tournament of Champions title in 1991.

Watervliet had previously played on George Mardigan Court in the Harry Tucker Gymnasium.

The school will, however, remove the floorboards from the old gym that bear his name and encase them in a display in the new athletic wing. Presumably, all of the championship banners that bear his name - and there are a ton - will also be moved into the new gymnasium.

Did Watervliet goof by not naming this new court after its legendary coach? Or do you believe this is a good decision to start with a clean slate in a new building?
