Seahawk Natatorium
Men's Swimming and Diving/Women's Swimming and Diving

   Six Colonial Athletic Association championships and numerous youth swimming meets have been staged at the Seahawk Natatorium.
   Opened in 1978, the natatorium is one of the finest in the college ranks, featuring eight lanes that cover the 25x20 yard pool. The pool contains 185,000 gallons of water, with a separate diving well that holds 250,000 gallons and descends 17 feet.
   The facility measures 45x60 feet and includes two 3-meter and a pair of 1-meter boards. Other features of the structure include a first-aid and hydrotherapy room, showers and lockerrooms.
   Improvements have kept the natatorium a popular venue. In recent years, additional acoustical tiles have been added, an eight-lane printout Colorado scoreboard has been installed and a new public address system has been put into place.
   In the summer of 2002, the natatorium underwent a major heating and air conditioning renovation.
