The Walton County School Board approved a recommendation to spend more than $4 million on a new gymnasium at Paxton High School.
The current facility has been in use since the early 1950s.
Lady's basketball coach Herb Haddock said the gym has been great; however, it can no longer accommodate the large crowds during big games.
"When you come to big games here it's just unbelievable. It’s a great atmosphere. We hate to give it up, but we need seating for the community," said Haddock.
The district spent several million dollars last summer on a new administration building at Paxton.
