Elgin High School has completed a total renovation to Chesbrough Field House, which opened in 1972. Named for legendary boys basketball coach Bill Chesbrough, who won 573 games in his 35 years as the Chief Maroon, the field house had a rubberized floor that badly needed replacing. The total renovation includes a new and smaller overhead scoreboard, new plastic bleachers on both sides and one end of the massive field house, as well as new smaller scoreboards on the top of each backstop.
