St. Marys Memorial upgrades weight room equipment

New weight room equipment was installed at Memorial High School on June 8 and the early feedback from the students has been positive.

“Kids can be pretty tough on equipment so we made sure we got heavy-duty stuff that will hold up,” St. Marys Athletic Director Joe Bline said.

The Equipment Guys, a company out of  Urbancrest, Ohio, supplied the equipment.

The  cost of the weight room equipment was originally $60,000, but the three lowest bids for the equipment all came in over $10,000 below that estimate in March.

The Equipment Guys’ bid was $42,054.44, and Bline said the project came in well in under that original $60,000 budget.
