Snohomish swim teams host first meet at new pool

For the first time since Hal Moe Pool closed in 2007, the Snohomish and Glacier Peak boys swim teams will host a swim meet in Snohomish on Tuesday.

The Panthers and Grizzlies, who practice and compete together under coach Rob Serviss, host a meet with the two Marysville high schools and Cascade at the recently opened Snohomish Aquatic Center at 3:15 p.m.

When the new pool opens, “we’ll have a home,” Serviss told The Herald last month. “And we haven’t had a home for a long time. We haven’t hosted a meet in six years, so it’s going to be a great opportunity for the guys to know what it feels like to have a home meet and to have a home crowd and to have banners on the wall and a record board and all those things that make it (feel like) your home pool.

“It’ll give them a sense of identity, and even more a sense of ownership of the program by having their own building,” he added.

The two teams have been practicing at the Snohomish Aquatic Center recently, putting an end to the transportation nightmare that was trying to get all the teams’ swimmers to Mukilteo’s Olympic View Middle School.

The 52,000 square-foot aquatic center, located at 516 Maple Avenue in Snohomish, was constructed with funds that were part of the district’s 2008 capital projects bond. The $261.6 bond also paid for renovation of Snohomish High School and other district-wide improvements.
