The Phoenix Swim Club has hosted its last meet in the confines of the Brophy Sports Campus, as their historic pool is now set to be razed and developed for residential space. The pool was built in 1988, 26-years ago, and has served its primary tenants well.

The Phoenix Swim Club will close out their run at the pool in March and then prepare to transition to the beautiful new 50 meter pool at Phoenix Country Day, but they sent out the old course with a win at the Arizona Senior Short Course State Championship meet last weekend, and head coach (and SwimSwam co-founder) Garrett McCaffrey was kind enough to send us a few snaps of her swan song, and forward some others on from Meet Referee Art Gramer.

Full results of the meet available here.

We always loved going to that pool and racing! It was ALWAYS fast!

Gonna miss it big time! What a shame.

So sad to see this pool go. It meant so much to me! Congrats to PSC on the great state meet, there couldn’t have been a better send off and a way to honor that pool than winning state!

Good thing SAC, didn’t have their Sectional Team Swimming…
