MHCC to Host High School Swimming Championships

Posted: January 31, 2013

Mt. Hood Community College’s Aquatic Center will host the OSAA High School Swimming Championships Feb. 15 - 16. This is the 27th time that MHCC has hosted this prestigious event.

The meet will take place at the college’s 50-meter swimming pool, which is under a dome during the cooler months and under the sun and stars during the warmer months. All pools will be closed to public access due to this event.

This annual event is expected to attract more than 1,000 students, coaches and spectators. Volunteers are needed to direct the large crowd and distribute shirts and other goods.

Tickets for the event are $8 for adults and $5 for students. If you would like to volunteer to help staff this event, please contact Katie Heilsberg, Steven Hula or Donna Ryan in the MHCC Aquatic Center, 503-491-7421. “The general support of our youth definitely pays off in the long run,” says Hula.

Parking is free on all MHCC campuses, all days, all days, no permit required.
