Swim team members officially opened the new Mt. Lebanon High School pool on Monday. Swimmers dropped a little water saved from the old pool into the new one during a ceremony, then dove in for an inaugural swim. The 25-yard, eight-lane pool includes a timing system, matrix scoreboard and stadium seating for 200. The old, five-lane pool was built in 1955.

Mt. Lebanon wrestlers also held a ribbon cutting for their new wrestling gym on Monday. The school is undergoing $109 million in renovations, and the new athletic field house includes the pool and wrestling gym along with the health and physical education departments, classrooms, a fitness center, a main gym and other facilities. As new areas are completed, they're opening for student and community use.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
