Bayou Academy excited over renovations
Southern Sports & Travel 
The Bayou Academy basketball program is buzzing with excitement even though the 2012-13 season is five months from starting. For the first time since Bayou's basketball court was surfaced with a rubber synthetic floor in 1990 the Colts basketball teams for the upcoming season will experience a brand new wood floor surrounded by freshly painted walls and a stage area to boot. Of course with a brand new maple wood floor new goals and backboards are a must as well.
The $150,000 renovation project is expected to be completed by mid July and Bayou boys head basketball coach Winn Scott is pleased. "We're really excited, and the kids are excited to play on a wood surface for the first time at Bayou Academy home games," said Scott.
Covington Flooring out of Birmingham has been laying the new 3/4" maple floor that will be screwed in to provide stability.
"It's an exciting time for us and as a Bayou graduate myself it's great to see our school continue to progress," said Scott. 
Before the end of school everything from top to bottom received a fresh coat of paint in preparation for the floor installation.

Design of the finished product
Bayou Academy has an enrollment of 360 and is located in Cleveland, Mississippi and with the upgrade to its' gymnasium there is hope and anticipation of hosting future MAIS basketball post season tournaments.
