Jody Victor: Dedicated October 14, 2005, the Bill and Mae McCorkle Aquatic Pavilion is the newest addition to Ohio State's top-notch athletic facilities. Considered one of the finest competition pools in the nation, the McCorkle Aquatic Pavilion's new technology will provide a venue for some of the fastest times in the country.
The pavilion consists of the Mike Peppe Natatorium and the Ron O'Brien Diving Well. The Peppe Natatorium, named for the former Ohio state head coach, features a 50-meter competition pool and 1,750 spectator seating. The O'Brien Diving Well consists of 3-centerline towers and the ability to have 1- and 3-meter springboards on all four sides of the well. Holding nearly 1.56 million gallons of water in the entire facility, the Pavilion is part of Ohio State's new Recreation and Physical Activities Center (RPAC).
