UAA Athletics talk damage caused by 7.0 magnitude Alaska earthquake

ANCHORAGE (KTUU) — The sports community across Alaska continues to respond to damage from last Friday’s earthquake.

UAA announcing Wednesday that its Alaska Airlines Center had broken glass in several trophy cases, plus flooding on the main floor of the arena.

That flooding was cleaned up shortly after the quake, leaving some standing water but with no games this weekend, it should have plenty of time to dry.

The gymnastics studio and auxiliary gym at the Alaska Airlines Center had sheet rock damage, but it's being repaired.

UAA Gymnastics canceled its Green and Gold Meet set for December 8th.

The Wells Fargo Sports complex only saw minor damage with a busted pipe spewing water near the Seawolves practice rink. The pool did not have any damage.

Before leaving for Minnesota, the hockey team practiced at the Sullivan Arena on Tuesday, the basketball team practiced at Grace Christian School, and the gymnastics team has been practicing at the Anchorage Gymnastics Association. The track and field teams continue to practice at The Dome.

No UAA athletic events, besides gymnastics, will be rescheduled or missed as a result of Friday’s damage.
