Facility Changes For The Wheeler Center
During the summer months, the Belmont Abbey Athletics Department is rearranging some rooms to better accomodate the needs of the growing department.
The wrestling program is moving its operations to Sacred Heart Campus. In its place, the lower gym, which housed the wrestling program since its inception in 2005, will become the weight/fitness room. The current weight room will become the men’s lacrosse locker room.
The lower gym gives our student-athletes more room (four times the space) to grow and develop. The windows in the current weight room will have to be sealed off. The project should be done in time for fall semester.
Wrestling will hold its home matches at the Wheeler Center, but will practice and train at Sacred Heart Gym. Photos will be provided as the project moves forward.
