Nobody was hurt, according to Chris Walker, the principal of Muncie Central High School.
Built in 1928 for more than $400,000, the Muncie Fieldhouse is one of the largest high school gymnasiums in the country. It seats more than 7,600 people.
As of early Monday morning, Muncie is still under a travel advisory due to the storm damage. About 6,000 people are without power.
