Spartan swimming meet at aquatics center is canceled

Today's girls swimming meet between Bainbridge High and Holy Names Academy at the Bainbridge Island Aquatics Center has been canceled.

The cancelation was not due to last week's meltdown of the heating unit for the Ray Williamson Pool, however.

The heating unit, which was destroyed by a fire on Oct. 15, has since been replaced, said John DeMeyer, recreation services director for the Bainbridge Island Metro Park & Recreation District.

Instead, blame the cancelation on a faulty filter.

"They had a problem with one of the filters and it was leaking material past it," DeMeyer said.
