A New Home
The aquatic program is building a new home. The planning for a new complex has been completed with the design stage well underway. The new facility will feature a 10-lane, 50 meter by 25 meter competition pool that will allow 1,500 spectators a bird’s eye view while seating an additional 1,000 people on the pool deck. Also featured will be a separate diving well with a tower.

The team is hoping to see a picture of what the aquatic center could look like by mid-season. They are still a year away from breaking ground, but hope to have the complex completed between September 2003 and January 2004.

Next Up
At 6 p.m. Friday, Feb. 2, the Buckeyes take on Oakland, at the Mike Peppe Aquatic Center.
