Locker Room Progress

Doors open to new prospects and student athletes.

Renovations to the men’s basketball, cross country, football, golf, lacrosse and soccer locker rooms, as well as the athletic training and equipment rooms, and the staff/officials locker room are near completion. And they’re generating excitement among the student athletes and staff who will use them this fall.

The $400,000 fundraising goal for the project received generous financial support from alumni, parents, friends and corporations.

“Athletic facilities are an increasingly important choice driver for prospective student athletes,” says Athletics Director Steve Peed, “and are critical to delivering a high-quality experience.”

Until now, the spaces MMA men’s teams call home have looked largely the same for more than a half-century. The new facilities offer more utility, comfort and cleanliness, and serve to honor the athletes in their endeavors.

“The addition of women’s locker rooms for each team has had a dramatic impact on female enrollment, as well as the caliber of athlete that we attract,” says Peed. The new men’s locker rooms and affiliated spaces should provide an equal boost to recruiting and athlete morale in the years ahead.
