Weight Room Gets New Look

August 14, 2013

(Tuesday, August 13; Sioux Center, Iowa) Visitors to and patrons of the Dordt College weight room in the Recreation Center will notice a difference when they step in the door courtesy a project by Dordt College student Seth Vande Voort.

Vande Voort, a Sports Management major, interned with  the Dordt College Athletic Department undertaking several projects during the months of May, June, July and August.  Those projects included assisting with the annual Defender Gold Club golf outing; compiling and organizing recruit lists and giving the weight room a face lift.

“The weight room hadn’t been painted since the facility opened in 1996,” said Adam Conway, Dordt College Strength and Conditioning coach.  “Seth, came up with the color scheme, and design. I gave him the basis of what I wanted to do in terms of words and logo design and he ran with the rest.”

Vande Voort, assisted by members of the Dordt College summer maintenance crew, painted black and gold stripes to break up the white and white lettering for the various motivational quotes.

Vander Voort will be a senior at Dordt College in 2012-13 and is a member of the Defender football and track and field programs.
