SCHENECTADY, N.Y. (AP) - Administrators at an upstate New York school that lost its football equipment in a suspected arson fire say it could cost more than $500,000 to replace the gear and the building where it was stored.

Notre Dame-Bishop Gibbons Principal Peter Fusco (FYOO’-skoh) tells WTEN-TV in Albany (https://bit.ly/2f4Fj6L ) that the Schenectady school’s baseball and track and field teams also lost equipment in last Friday’s early morning fire.

Fusco says replacing the sports equipment is estimated at about $100,000, plus as much as $500,000 to rebuild the field house.

Notre Dame-Bishop Gibbons and two other small Catholic schools that field the combined Holy Trinity team were able to play in last Saturday’s playoff game thanks to equipment donated by local colleges, high schools and businesses.

A 46-12 loss in the first round of the playoffs ended the team’s season.
