Damien has opened its brand-new, state-of-the-art weight room. The room is located in the Spartan Hall building and now pretty much completes the superfecta of improvements made to the athletic program: new gym, new baseball field, new football field and now new weight room.
“Nowadays it’s very important,” Damien coach Greg Gano said of the weight room. “Twenty-five years ago, kids coming on your campus didn’t really care about the weight room. I think when a kid comes on our campus now and looks at our facilities, and sees that weight room, he’ll know its as good as any around. It’s a good selling point for the school.”
Aram’s take: A big score for all Spartans athletic teams. But since we only care about football here, I’ll just say that I hope it helps Damien get strong enough to compete in the Inland Division. They’ll need it.
