Donations Bring Big Projects to YSU Athletics

Three racquetball courts inside Stambaugh Stadium are going to be transformed into a theatre-style classrooms with 150 seats for athletic programs, academic classes and others to rent. Jimmy DiBacco and his family made a donation to this project.

The physical training room on the first floor of the Beeghly Center will be transformed into a secondary academic advising area, more convenient for volleyball, basketball and swimming student-athletes. A new training facility with state-of-the-art equipment will be near the current training room in Beeghly Center. It replaces a large, vacant classroom. Former Chaney High School and YSU football standout Bob Korandovich donated funds for this project.

YSU received an academic grant from the NCAA last month for $100,000, which will be used for these projects. The two projects have an estimated price tag of $1.5 million.
