Better late than never: Marin Catholic’s brand-new stadium was completed and it looks amazing. The new complex replaces the old stands, which were inherited from College of Marin in the late 1960s. The opening marks the end of the school’s $32 million mission in updating facilities, including classrooms, the chapel, and construction of a $13 million academic center. One of the most important aspects of the stadium is the title — the Dino Ghilotti Motta Stadium. Dino Ghilotti was an excellent student-athlete at Marin Catholic who was tragically killed in a car crash last spring following his graduation from the University of Miami. The stadium, donated in part by Nancy and Dick Ghilotti, his parents, will undoubtedly stand as a lasting memorial to this beloved alumni.

Weight Room and Stadium

Some features of the stadium complex include a weight room, a training room, locker rooms, an alumni deck, and a bronze wildcat statue. All of this was on display in Marin Catholic’s first home game of the season against rival St. Ignatius. The game ended in a heartbreaking loss, but we lost in style, enjoying the amenities of the Dino Ghilotti Motta Stadium. Not only will the stadium benefit Marin Catholic’s football program, but it will also serve all other sports through the use of the state-of-the-art weight room and field. Come stop by Coach Lawson’s new stomping grounds and admire the NFL-caliber set up with so many MC logos you won’t be able to count them all.

The new stadium speaks to the motto, “When you do it, do it right” and represents the school’s emphasis on tradition, pride, excellence, and community. The complex will hopefully boost overall school pride and provide alumni with a unique gathering place for years to come. Be sure to check out a game this year and support our teams in the exciting opening season of Dino Ghilotti Motta Stadium.
