Brainerd High School’s Activities Director Charlie Campbell describes the planning process for the district’s new eight-lane pool. Brainerd will now be able to host larger swim meets and better accommodate other programs on campus when the existing pool space is converted into a multi-purpose room. Boys Head Swim Coach John Zemke talks about the importance of a separate diving well and the benefit of having everyone practice at the same time. Junior swimmer Thomas Rule explains some challenges with the existing pool and what he’s looking forward to in the new facility. “It’s really going to put Brainerd back on the map as the gold standard for greater Minnesota,” Campbell says.
