Many thanks to the Costa coaches and neighboring schools for making sure Costa athletes were able to continue practicing while the Costa pool was repaired. Additionally, a big shout out to Stephanie Hall who kept everyone updated each step of the way. What could have been a disaster is now a faded memory and the boys are excited about the rest of the season!
