Bruin Swim Team Prepares for Inaugural Season

The first-ever George Fox swim team is set to dive into competition this winter, becoming the 21st varsity sport offered by the university.

The team will be led by head coach Natalie Turner, a former NCAA Division III All-American and 12-time individual Northwest Conference champion while a student at Whitworth University.

And while the Bruins are a new program, they’ll call one of the finest facilities in the conference home: the newly remodeled Chehalem Aquatic Center, located right across the street from campus, which just completed phase one of a $19.9 million renovation.

“This is a historic time at George Fox University,” says athletic director Adam Puckett. “Our intention is to compete immediately within the Northwest Conference and to run a championship-caliber collegiate swim program.”
