FARGO, N.D. (NDSU Media Relations)-– North Dakota State University announced Jim and Victoria Ingstad have committed $1.2 million to the "Building the Competitive Edge for Bison Athletics" campaign for the Sanford Health Athletic Complex. The gift will be recognized by naming the club room and media workroom in the Scheels Center basketball arena. Jim Ingstad is the current owner of Radio FM Media he is a partner in Gateway Chevrolet, which supports the Bison by providing courtesy cars to coaches. Jim also supports Bison athletics through the scholarship endowment program and previously owned Radio Fargo-Moorhead (now Midwest Communications), which is the radio home of NDSU athletics. The expansion and renovation of existing Bison Sports Arena will transform the facility and the surrounding area, known as the Sanford Health Athletic Complex, into a true Division I athletic complex reflecting the new NDSU. Additionally, it will serve as the "front door" venue welcoming student-athletes and campus guests with the Bison Athletic Hall of Fame, Hall of Champions and various fan services and facilities. Scheels Center will seat more than 5,700 fans for basketball, and a two-court basketball training facility will be added to the southwest corner of the existing structure. The west-side addition will house human performance facilities, including strength and conditioning, sports medicine and rehabilitation areas. The renovated BSA also will have an academic center for student-athletes. The newly built Shelly Ellig Indoor Track and Field Facility opened for training and competition in December 2012.
