University to Add Swim Team in 2018

George Fox will offer men’s and women’s swimming as intercollegiate sports beginning in the fall of 2018. The team will train and compete at the Chehalem Aquatic Center, which will undergo nearly $20 million in renovations.

The city of Newberg broke ground on the renovation project in October. A $19.9 million bond, passed by voters in November of 2014, will fund needed basic infrastructure updates and the installation of more modern features, equipment and amenities. Plans call for the facility to open by December of 2017.
