Siena College athletes literally bumped into each other in a crowded weight room. They sat two to a table in a cramped trainers' room.

The Saints had among the worst, most outdated facilities in the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference, according to athletic staff. But no longer.

Siena opened a new strength and conditioning suite for its NCAA teams last month. A new sports medicine area will be ready this month. They're part of $13.5 million in upgrades to Siena's athletic complex for both varsity athletes and the general student population.

"I'm happy for our athletes that they're able to experience it and the coaches for recruiting purposes," Siena athletic director John D'Argenio said. "It's good to see this piece coming to completion. Also, it just looks so much better for the campus aesthetics."
