Logan field house gets new name to honor former teacher Steve Hole



The Logan High School Field House is getting a new name.

A unanimous vote by the La Crosse School Board this week to rename the field house to honor former teacher Steve Hole was met with great applause from those in attendance.


Hole passed away unexpectedly in April. He was 72.

Hole taught at Logan, where he graduated from in 1968, for 32 years. He taught math, spent 13 years as the activities director at the high school and coached middle school cross country and track. 

Logan High School put together a committee consisting of community members, parents, staff and students, to discuss renaming the field house. They found that the support was overwhelmingly positive.

“Anyone who knew Mr. Hole knew the profound impact he had on the north side and particularly Logan High School.” Logan’s associate principal, Anthony DePaolo said. “He lived a life of service to his community, his country and to Logan High School, and it’s only fitting that he be recognized in some way.”

The Logan booster club also gave their endorsement to rename the building. 

Board member Brad Quarberg made the motion to change the name of the field house and called the decision a “no brainer.”

“If anybody has any affiliation with Logan, you know that Steve was there for pretty much everything,” Quarberg said. “Not only that, he was there for the students and for the kids. He’s a great icon for the north side and I wholeheartedly support this and applaud the naming of the field house for him.”
