Just walking around the building, you can tell Gerber Field House has seen better days. A recent inspection of the building revealed the roof could be potential threat to safety of the athletes practicing inside.
"The roof is old," said Ed Paola, Saint Louis School Athletic Director. "It wasn't condemned or anything like that. It was recommended to take steps to get out of the building or do something about it."
Kamehameha Schools sold Saint Louis School the building more than 30 years ago.
Since then, Gerber Field House has served as the training facility for athletes like cheerleaders, football players and the wresting team. Those athletes are now forced to practice in temporary buildings or other locations on campus.
"It's never a good time to do this," said Paola. "The biggest thing is the weight room. That's the biggest thing used right now by the football teams."
Administrators plan to tear down the building and have a new one built in three years. Hearing news this historic building could be torn down, is a bittersweet feeling for Roleen O'Toole, who used to practice in the building.
"It's sad. I was a cheerleader here when it was first built and put there." said O'Toole. "Hopefully something new will take its place and it will be bigger and better and safer and safer for the boys that are here."
