Damien High School’s athletic upgrades took another big step this week with the unveiling of the school’s weight room located at Spartan Hall. Damien had already redone its baseball and football fields and built a new gym. Now students have what school staff are calling a state-of-the-art weight room to go along with it.

“We’re very excited,” Damien athletic director Tom Carroll said.

“I feel that these boys are very fortunate to have something like this. I hope and pray they appreciate the hard work it took to get something like this done.”

The new weight room is estimated to have cost in the neighborhood of $220,000 and features 80 lifting stations spread over 3,400 square feet.

“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 it’s as good as any around. It’s a good selling point for the school.”
