The Washington-Grizzly Champions Center, a brand-new, 51,000-square-foot facility, opened this fall.
Along with new weight rooms and meeting rooms for all Griz athletes, the center will house the football team’s locker room. The Montanan got a sneak peak at the lockers that the players will use. Each locker is 96 inches tall and 33 inches wide, and there are 116 lockers total in the new locker room.
The lockers are made from cherrywood and feature stainless steel accents, hooks and hardware embellished with the Griz logo. They also come equipped with an individual ventilation system, which will dry out the equipment and cut down on odor. They also feature a donor nameplate.
The lead gift for the $14 million project was from Kyle and Kevin Washington on behalf of the Dennis and Phyllis Washington Foundation. Hundreds of others donors contributed, too.
