Dear Fellow Vikings,


The St. Anne-Pacelli Vikings are working hard to revive the Nathan Rustin spirit to the sports programs in both the middle and high school.  In the core of this resurgence is the need for conditioned, confident and prepared student-athletes.  Randy Grace has been selected to lead the football program, and his excitement and enthusiasm is powerful and contagious. This new energy has resulted in the much-needed renovation of the Nathan Rustin Weight Room.  


With Coach Grace's vision and Ed Fernandez's leadership, a planned $60,000 renovation has begun to transform the weight room into a 21st century showcase that we can all be proud of.  The weight room will house Coach Grace's office; have boy's and girl's bathroom; a storage closet; wide screen tv for all coaches to breakdown film of their games; and the necessary training equipment for ALL sports.


To date, more than $40,000 has been committed through donations however, the crowning jewel in this renovation is the purchase of a world-class PRO SERIES Power Cage (as shown below).  These cages are multi-functional and will allow the athletes to maximize their physical potential, build confidence and succeed in their sport.


Only $20,000 is needed to purchase the cages and this awesome project will then be complete. If you would like to make a donation, please complete and return the Weight Room Renovation Donation Form.  As Coach Grace says, 'all of us are better than one of us.'

Weight Cage




This imposing piece of equipment towers over the weight room.  It is the strongest and most versatile cage on the market. Designed to shoulder the load for the most discerning atheletes.


Built from 3" x 3", 11 gauge tubing with an indesctructible 7 gaguge racking system and finished with durable yet replaceable UMHW wear gaurds, the 3221 was designed to survive all the abuse that any powerlifter, football team or rocket launcher could throw at it.


Nathan Rustin Forever.
