Northridge Begins Upgrading Facilities

May 25, 2000

Construction is underway at Cal State Northridge to renovate the existing athletic training facilities, a project expected to be completed in July.

The project is being funded largely by an $80,000 donation the university received last month from Encino-Tarzana Regional Medical Center. Additional donations are expected to help fund the project, which will include renovated locker rooms among a state-of-the-art facility.

"We're gutting an old locker room and we're expanding the strength-and-conditioning room," Athletic Director Dick Dull said. "The training room will be upgraded to a Division I level, which it is not now. And the strength-and-conditioning facility will, probably, be as good as, if not better, anything in the Big West or the Big Sky [conferences]."


Second baseman Mark Torrey, shortstop Ryan Yoshiwara, pitcher Scott Courneya and designated hitter Tom Galante of Cal Lutheran were selected to the NCAA Division III West Regional baseball team.

Yoshiwara had eight hits in two games while finishing the season with a 14-game hitting streak. Yoshiwara, a junior who led the Kingsmen with a .405 batting average, began the season with a 13-game hitting streak.

Eric Medina of Cal Lutheran had a hitting streak stopped at 16 games during the tournament.

Pitcher Tom Canale (11-2) finished his junior year as the Kingsmen's career strikeouts leader with 318.

Cal Lutheran (28-14-2) was eliminated Saturday by Chapman.
