PLYMOUTH â€” Thurs-day night marked the end of swim competition in the Plymouth High School pool. After more than 35 years of use, the pool has become in disrepair and is scheduled to be closed forever.
Head Swim Coach Leanne Senter said, â€śTonightâ€™s meet will be bittersweet,â€ť adding she has been coaching swim teams for 10 years and is in her seventh year as the head coach, and fourth as diving coach. â€śIâ€™ve seen a lot of kids grow up in this pool and itâ€™s just like home to us.â€ť
PLYMOUTH â€” For the kids in the Adventures after School program at Fitness Forum, afternoons arenâ€™t just for hanging out and relaxing in front of the TV.
â€śWe try to get them doing some kind of (physical) activity when they are here with us,â€ť said Julie Stauffer, who co-leads the group with husband Rich Stauffer.
