When the Mitchell Aquatics Club assembled its temporary pool recently, I don’t think club members knew just how temporary that pool would be. As you can read in today’s Daily Republic, the pool collapsed and drained yesterday.
The part of our coverage that’s undoubtedly generating the most discussion today is the following quote from MAC coach Chuck Baechler:
"The hard thing is we filled a perfectly good swimming pool with cement."
As the news story goes on to say, Baechler was talking about the MAC’s former home at the Mitchell Middle School, where a pool was closed and filled last summer.
