Mackal, Keaney Get Facelifts

Things are looking a bit different at Three Keaney Road, where a $1.4 million project to redo the indoor track in Mackal Fieldhouse and a $22,000 renovation of the Keaney Gymnasium floor were completed in January. Assistant Athletic Director of Management and Planning Art Tuveson oversaw both projects.

In Mackal, which opened in 1991, the track was upgraded from urethane surfacing to Mondo FTX surfacing. It’s the same surface that was used for the 2008 Beijing Olympic track and will be used for the 2012 London Olympic track. “The eight previous Olympics prior to Beijing were Mondo’s Super X,” Tuveson said. “Mondo FTX is the newest version of Super X. The fact that it’s been used in the last 10 Olympic games speaks yards.”

The Keaney floor gives a new look to the home of the women’s volleyball team. Boston-based O’Sullivan Flooring did the work, part of a complete renovation for Keaney, which opened in 1953. The gymnasium also has 20 new doors to the facility and, according to Tuveson, a new volleyball scoreboard will be in place before the start of the 2012 season. The new scoreboard will also handle basketball functions.
