The Pool

Built in the mid-1950s, the swimming pool provided a state-of-the-art aquatic facility that attracted some of the world’s greatest talent to LBCC.  Olympic Coach Monte Nitzkowski led the swimming and water polo teams for years when the team routinely defeated the likes of UCLA, USC, and Stanford.  The diving pool included a window into the deep end where divers could be photographed with a Long Beach City College wall behind them.
