NEW ULM — Martin Luther College’s Betty Kohn Fieldhouse hosted a special ribbon cutting Thursday with the Willkommen Committee of the New Ulm Area Chamber of Commerce.

The fieldhouse has long been a dream of MLC, and the construction of the building was completed earlier this year. Students have been using the facility since February.

Dave Biedenbender, MLC interim athletic director, said the facility serves as practice space during inclement weather. The building can also be used for intramural sports, physical education classes.

There is potential to open the facility for community use once the college has determined hours of operation.
