STAMFORD, Conn. — A pair of high school swim coaches placed on leave late last month after several teen athletes were sickened while swimming in an untreated pool have been reinstated, according to the Stamford Advocate.
An investigation completed by Stamford School District officials found that Coach Rick Lewis and Assistant Coach Kyle Cutter-Dabiri had done nothing wrong when conditions in the pool sickened members of the Westhill-Stamford girls co-op swimming and diving team, according to the Advocate.
After the two were put on leave, parents came to their defense, blaming conditions in Westhill’s pool on “poor facilities maintenance,” according to the Advocate.
A spokeswoman for the district said “corrective measures” have been taken since the incident, the Advocate reported.
