Training Room Retains Footprint While Expanding Facilities

The De La Salle Collegiate Training Room, located between the weight room and the Bill Fox Gymnasium hallway, underwent a total “facelift” during the summer. 

Utilizing a donation from DLS alumnus Robert Smetanka, ‘69, and construction guidance from Paul Brillati, ‘90, and his company King Development, the room has several upgrades:

  • One of the two doors into the hallway was bricked in, and a second door into the weight room was added. Trainer Nicole Zarucki noted part of rehabilitation for athletes also includes utilizing machines. 
  • New counters and cabinets
  • New sink
  • New office space
  • Two new training tables
  • Two new taping stations (previously, there was one)
  • Central air-conditioning

Smetanka made the donation in honor of his family and Br. Patrick McNally. Smetanka enjoyed a successful 45-year career as an athletic trainer and physical therapist, which he credits to the initial direction from Br. Pat.
