Everybody in the pool

In two years, UTSC will open its first-ever dedicated aquatics and athletics centre. But just because the campus has never had its own swimming pool doesn’t mean its students haven’t excelled at water sports over the years. In 2011, undergrad Paige Schultz won a bronze medal in swimming at the Pan American Games in Guadalajara, Mexico. And, shown here on home turf, the renowned UTSC men’s water polo team, circa 1980, muck around before practicing in nearby Highland Creek. Okay, so maybe they didn’t practice in the creek per se. But we’re sure they would have loved to be on campus in 2014, when UTSC gets not one Olympic-sized pool, but two.
