SI Swimming was recently informed that the Brian Bent Memorial Aquatics Complex in Coronado will be closed to swim meets because of safety/liability concerns due to its crumbling pool deck.  The deck will most likely need to be replaced later this year. This will affect the upcoming CNSA AB Meet in June and the Long Course Junior Olympics in July.  Both meets will now need to find alternate pools, which is no easy task at this late date and with the usually busy summer schedule of most long course pools within San Diego county. More information to follow as it becomes available.
