Pool facility named

Standing proudly in the newly named Margaret and Paul Savage Aquatic Centre are the two founding coaches (foreground) of SFU's highly successful swimming and diving program. The Savages flank former swimming star John Van Buuren, resplendent in his old road-trip kilt, who holds a plaque noting the facility's new name. More than 100 swimmers and divers, from the original 1965-66 team right up to the present day, were among those on hand to honor Paul, the first coach and his wife Margaret, the first assistant coach. Alumni travelled from places as far afield as Australia, Nova Scotia and California to attend the ceremony and dinner.
