Southwestern College Aquatics Makes Waves in National City


Southwestern College pools are getting an upgrade, but that didn’t sink the college’s swim teams. The old swimming pools and the 1000 building have been demolished and cleared to make way for the new Math, Science and Engineering Building. By the next spring semester, however, the college swim teams will be diving into new state-of-the-art Olympic-sized pools in the new Wellness & Aquatics Complex.

So during this temporary transition, the college’s swim teams swam upstream to the Las Palmas Pool in National City. Their season is just getting started and they’re still looking for swimmers to join them in the water. Here’s the info to join either the men’s or women’s swim team:

Where: Las Palmas Pool, National City
