In the fall of 1974, Portage Central High School began its swimming and diving programs. In the fall of 2018, we took time to remember the past, to honor tradition, and to look forward to years of exciting competition as we dedicated our new Portage Central Natatorium. After some opening words of celebration, and a commemorative video, student-athletes lined the deck to be part of the festivities. Hundreds of parents, students, alumni and community members were in the stands to watch our swimmers, divers, and water polo players ceremonially pour water from the old pool into the new pool. The evening ended with cake and conversation as we expressed our gratitude to the Portage Community not only for their generous gift, but for over 40 years of support for Mustang Aquatics. We are truly grateful.
