Creighton Prep introduced a new Billy Bluejay design with the Wednesday, August 8 completion of the floor renovation project in the Heider Center. The new Billy is represented in a darker shade of blue and in a white CP T-shirt instead of the collared CP sweater used in the previous design.
The floor renovation project began with sanding the surface using different grains of sandpaper in order to get it very smooth. After that, stain was applied to darken both three point areas around the free-throw lanes. Graphics for Billy as well as Creighton Prep, AMDG and Jr. Jays were then added along with a coat of PMS 280 Blue (Prep blue) to the baselines and sidelines as well as striping on the two outer courts. After that, covers on the graphics were removed and multiple coats of sealer were applied.
The school would like to thank the donors who made it possible and Omaha firms Iridian Group (Dan Douglas '92) and Egan Supply Company (Jim '77, Pat '78 and Dan '83) as well as Hardwood Specialists and Craftsman LLC of Waupaca, Wisconsin.
