Stanford grad Heisick takes over M-A swim program

Original post made on Dec 19, 2012

Spieker Pool at Menlo-Atherton High is presently empty and undergoing repairs and renovation. It couldn't be more appropriate, since the Bears' aquatics program is doing the same.

No mention of the former MAHS swim coach that successfully led the our athletes for so many years? Why the partial story Almanac? Disappointing to say the least.

What I am more curious about is why the Job was never posted and opened to other qualified applicants? This job was handed to her, and it seems, to expand an ever existing large aquatic program that functions at more than 5 pools already.
I would love to see if the Almanac would follow up on my question and ask the school, M-A and the Sequoia High School District, why the job was handed to someone.

Don't miss out on the discussion!
