MacKay gymnasium has recently become “home” to the Olivet Colleges women’s basketball team.
At the end of the 2017-18 season, the women’s basketball team started moving its way over to MacKay. According to Zach Ingles, women’s basketball coach, the team started to practice there last year and liked it because it was closer to the other facilities on campus and has less traffic than Cutler does.
This year the team will be using the MacKay gym for practices, scrimmages, and workouts, also causing the gym to be off limits to other students at different times throughout the season.
John Adams, sophomore and football player, said, “I use the gym to play basketball at different times of the day, I’m worried that I won’t be able to do that as often as I did before.” Adams also said that the football team does drills in MacKay gym for off season workouts and hopes that they don’t have to find somewhere else to do that.
