Calallen High School recently opened a brand new saltwater swimming pool. The grand opening was held a week before the school year began.

The school hired three highly trained lifeguards to work at the pool. The new lifeguards have had jobs as lifeguards prior to working at the school’s new pool.

“I do enjoy being a lifeguard,” senior RJ Loa said. “You kind of have a higher position.”

Loa said that it is a fun job but also required lots of attention.

“As a lifeguard our job is to make sure all students and staff or frankly anybody who uses the pool are safe and using it appropriately,” Loa said.

Calallen has a large team of amazing swimmers who are ready for the new season with the pool.

“There’s ten people in the class,” Heflin said. “But there’s twenty-seven people on the team.”

Swimming is more difficult than most realize. Junior Emily Grossman said it is a very mental and individual based sport.

“You do have to be physically fit,” Grossman said. “It is a mental thing too because you don’t know if you can push through it.”

The swim team is thankful that they no longer have to travel to TM, Del Mar, or the Natatorium to practice.

“It’s good we have the class,” Heflin said. “We don’t have to travel for practice anymore.”

Swim team members and Coach Heflin are excited about the new addition to the campus.

Swim team members take their first swim in the new pool.
