“That weight room is a big, big plus for our program,” said Athletic Director Daryl Arroyo. “To our academic program, to preparing our athletes to perform better. And it will have a huge impact on recruiting.”

The new room brings in new weights with the Mustangs logo embedded and a brand new floor.

“It’s great. It’s like a high level division one quality weight room,” said Women’s Head Basketball Coach Gina Johnson. “It’s very small, but high quality equipment, so our girls love it.”

The floor also has green mats that resemble grass the students are appreciating.

“It’s a whole lot cleaner, the mats are better, and I use the grass to do sit-ups,” said fourth-year student Francesco Tomayo.

Even though there is still some branding around the walls that needs to be done, athletes and students will appreciate the commitment to Delta College’s weight training program.

“Sports brings people in the community together,” said Assistant Head Football Coach Doug Murray.
