Photo Vault: SwimSwam at the OCCC Pool

As we reported yesterday, the Oklahoma City Community College 50-meter pool will close at the end of the summer of 2015, ending the pool’s 25-year run as a center piece of swimming in Oklahoma.

In addition to the other events it hosts, the O-Triple-C has been the home of the NAIA National Championships since 2012. I have had the privilege of working with OCCC staff at NAIA Nationals for the last three years in a row. Rarely have I felt more welcomed, more supported. It’s a great facility with a terrific staff. Here are some images:

Swimming pools should be allowed to use US funds for infrastructure repairs! What a loss for Oklahoma City!
