The latest addition to Jesuit’s athletic facilities made a sparkling debut on Tuesday, when the Rangers hosted swimmers from Ursuline and Greenhill.
The occasion was the first dual meet in the Segal Family Aquatic Center, a 29,000-square-foot complex funded by a $17 million donation by Rachel Segal — the largest monetary gift in the school’s history — in honor of her late husband, David.
Since opening earlier this fall, the natatorium has housed the Jesuit swimming and water polo programs. But it had never staged a competitive meet until this week.
The Rangers, along with Ursuline, will host two more dual meets this season at “The Gull,” against Frisco Wakeland on Jan. 6 and Highland Park on Jan. 11.
