Earlier this week, we reported about Mercyhurst University using a generous alumni gift to help fund a massive renovation of its sports facilities. The project would create an expansion of locker rooms in the Mercyhurst Ice Center, a third athletic field for softball and soccer, and improved training facilities used by rowing teams.
