AM: Gonzaga breaks ground

With nearly 300 student-athletes and perhaps another 100 guests looking on, Gonzaga held a groundbreaking ceremony Thursday for the Volkar Center for Athletic Achievement. The three-story facility to be located in front of the Martin Centre will house a Hall of Fame, state-of-the-art basketball practice court, strength and conditioning area for GU’s basketball teams, nutrition and social space and academic support services for all student-athletes. Before the groundbreaking, Pat Volkar, center, lead donor for the Volkar Center for Athletic Achievement, chats with Gonzaga head basketball coach Mark Few, on left, and Gonzaga President Thayne McCulloh,  Jim Meehan/SR story here (subscription). SR photo: Colin Mulvany.
