A $6.7 million project to improve Gonzaga Preparatory School's athletic facilities is entering its third phase this fall, with a nearly $1 million addition to the private school's wrestling gymnasium.

According to city permit records, the 8,000-square-foot addition will be nearly 20 feet tall.

Paul Brown, development director at Gonzaga Prep, said the work was "pretty significant for the 60-year-old facility."

"The rest of our school has been touched. The athletic facilities haven't," Brown said. "It's going to be a game-changer for us in a lot of ways."

The new wrestling room at the high school will be used for more activities than wrestling, and will include a weight room.

For wrestling, the room will be able to hold four mats, allowing more wrestlers to train at once.

The first and second phases included new locker rooms and construction of what Brown called "the operational stuff," classrooms, team rooms, offices, conference room, fitness area and weight room, which will be done this fall.

A year from now, the latest phase will be done, a complete renovation and expansion of the school's main gym. The wrestling facilities will be below the main gym.

So far, the school has raised $5.2 million for the project, including a $1 million donation from a local donor.

Gonzaga Prep, 1224 E. Euclid Ave., is a private Catholic school founded in the basement of Gonzaga University in 1887, though the two are administered separately.

Spokane-based Garco Construction is the contractor on the design-build project.
