Featured Facility & SSOTY Finalist: West Coast Baptist College
Robbins is happy to announce the Featured Facility of the Month for October and Sports Surface of the Year Finalist goes to the The Walther Center at West Coast Baptist College, installed by Pacific Floor Company. Construction of the new facility began in 2014, and was recently completed this past August. It is equipped with 17,000 sq. ft. of Robbins Air-Channel Star with MFMA maple flooring. The 54,000 square foot facility includes 2 full size basketball courts for the men’s basketball team, that also converts to a volleyball court for the women’s volleyball team. The sports surface area also doubles as an event space for hosting gatherings, athletic events, and more. In addition, the large facility also has a student fellowship center, a restaurant, and a separate worship center.
The college and associated church, Lancaster Baptist, chose Robbins and Pacific Floor Company based on a strong relationship with a Robbins dealer in Michigan, Foster Specialty Floors. Through their trust in Foster’s reputation as a quality installer with high integrity, West Coast Baptist College was referred to Pacific and ultimately chose them to install the Robbins Air-Channel Star. They have been extremely happy with both the performance of the floor and the quality of the installation.
The Walther Center was named in memory of Leo Walther, a dedicated member of Lancaster Baptist Church, and strong supporter of the college and its students since the college opened in 1995. According to Pastor Paul Chappell, “when we broke ground on this building last June we chose to name it “The Walther Center” in memory of our dear friend. There never was a man who loved his Lord, his pastor, his church family, and the students and graduates of West Coast Baptist College more than Leo Walther”.

We are honored to be chosen as a supplier to The Walther Center at WCBC and wish them much success in their future volleyball and basketball seasons. We also congratulate Pacific Floor Company on another fantastic job and wish them luck as a finalist in the Sports Surface of the Year contest!
