PULLMAN - There is a lot of activity in Bohler Gym these days. While the Washington State women's volleyball team, under the direction of Head Coach Jen Greeny, is conducting spring practice drills, the facility the Cougar program calls home is undergoing a cosmetic facelift.
The first of several updates to the Bohler Gym volleyball facility was completed this week as part of WSU Athletics' branding master plan. Washington State Cougars was painted in crimson and white on the walls at the top of the seating areas on both the north and south sides of the gym. Large banners showcasing the Cougar volleyball programs' past NCAA Championship performances as well as photo banners of the former great women players selected to All-America and All-Pac-10 teams will be added as the project continues through spring.
Changes to the Bohler Athletic Complex, Beasley Coliseum, Bailey-Brayton Field, Gibb Pool, and the men's and women's basketball practice gym in the P.E. Building were designed and implemented by Downstream, a nationally recognized leader in sports facility design and branding based out of Portland, Ore. The project is part of the athletics branding master plan, commissioned by WSU Athletic Director Bill Moos and Senior Associate AD John Johnson, which Downstream is managing.
The Cougar volleyball team will host a spring tournament Saturday, April 7 with teams from Idaho, Eastern Washington, Seattle University, Montana State and Boise State competing.
