Tabor considering swim team

Staff writer

Tabor College is considering adding a swim team.

Athletic Director, Rusty Allen, says a decision is not imminent, however.

“The board of directors has indeed approved the principal of adding a swim team our athletic program,” he said Monday. “If we get the idea to a point where it can be approved, the idea might gain traction, but it is not ready to be approved.”

Allen said he expected the idea to leak out because it was an exciting prospect.

However, he did not want people to get their hopes up about something that might not happen.

“There is a lot of work to do,” he said. “We have no facility, no coach, no recruiting, and no scholarship set up. Basically we are in the envisioning stage right now.”

One of the possibilities Allen is considering is to use USD 408’s Sports and Aquatic Center, in Marion for practice and competition.

Nothing has been decided, however.
