ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – The University of New Mexico broke ground on a new roughly 11,000 square-foot facility that will be open for all student-athletes at the university. The New Mexico Mutual Champions Training Center will have three ground floor training areas, aerobic training, and also a large roof deck. “Everything they’re going to need is going to be housed in this facility. That was a big key for us in trying to give our student-athletes the optimal opportunity to succeed here at UNM,” said UNM athletic director Eddie Nuñez.
