“The Swamp” was given a huge facelift over the past year, as the Hostos gymnasium received a new floor and paint, bleachers, wall padding, and even new championship banners and shot clock.

Athletic Director Krishna Dass said the project took over a year to complete and would not have been possible with the support from Hostos President David Gómez, Vice President for Student Development and Enrollment Management Nathaniel Cruz, Senior Vice President of Administration and Finance Esther Rodríguez-Chardavoyne, Procurement Director Kevin Carmine, Health & Safety Officer Diahann McFarlane, Chief Administrative Superintendent Frank Virone, Assistant Dean of Student Life Johanna Gómez, and everyone from facilities and other departments who were involved.

The renovations were completed in late August, and Dass is excited about “Caiman Country’s” new look.
