RE: Tribe Swimming Sweeps CAA Championships
Great performances by both squads. You have to realize that we won both titles (second in a row for the men, by the way) having forfeited more than 20 diving points to start the meets in each championship meet as we have no divers.

Why no divers? We don't have diving facility at W&M.

Didn't Adair pool used to have diving facilities?

The Adair diving facilities were substandard and removed years ago. We are unable to train divers for the team, thus we go into every meet with our opponents already having 20+ points.

This is one reason why winning both conference championships is a remarkable feat.

How much would it cost to add diving facilities? Seems like it could be a good investment

My understanding is that this wasn't just a facilities decision. Pulling diving also diverted scholarship/coaching money to swimming I believe. I may be wrong about this, but I thought this was the case. I don't think it's a coincidence that our performance in the swimming events improved when diving went away.

There really isn't the available space at Adair for a decent diving venue...the old one years ago didn't meet NCAA standards. In truth the entire Adair pool is substandard and that is why a new swim complex is on the want list for the College.

One possible avenue is that W&M and Wmsbg/James City could work together on a new swim complex located at William and Mary. The former have no adequate pool for their schools and there have been discussions on a joint effort.

But any swim complex seems a long way away.

WISC is exploring an aquatic center to be constructed next to their Warhill facility. Diving may be part of that.

Crispino, an alum and architect of what is WMs sport of most recent sustained success has bolted for Princeton. Couldnt find the dollars to keep him?

"Over his dozen years, W&M won seven Colonial Athletic Association Championships, including back-to-back women's titles in 2016 and 2017 and the last five-straight men's titles. Before winning his team's first championship in 2015, the Tribe men had never before won a conference championship dating back to 1928, while the women had only ever won once before, in 2007."

Maybe swimming is a sport on the chopping block to fund the revenue sports
