As I was browsing the Union County Weekly, a particular article caught my eye: “Sportsplex details coming out.” As I began to read into it, I found that I approved of this endeavor but noticed it seemed to be lacking something. While sports fields are great, I think everyone would benefit from a pool being installed as well. I am a student at Porter Ridge High School and also a member of the swim team. Our swim team is forced to practice at the Monroe Aquatics Center because it is the closest available pool. The pool, while great for families to play in and water aerobics classes, is much too warm to effectively swim in competitively or practice in, either. Not to mention we have to share the pool with five other Union County high schools and can only manage to get in three hours of practice a week. I think a pool at the sportsplex could relieve some of these problems and provide a much-needed water facility for swim teams as well as the residents of Union County.
