<p>Sequim High School’s girls swim team began practices at the Sequim YMCA on Aug. 22. The pool was without heat on Monday due to the boiler not firing so the team did jumping jacks and took hot showers in between laps to stay warm. The Sequim Aquatic Recreation Center, now operating as the Sequim YMCA, opened it for the team and plans to tentatively open the facility to the public in October.
