The District has recognized the Washington High School coaching careers of Jim Voss and Hal Krizan by naming the WHS swimming pool in their honor. The pool was formally dedicated as the HAL KRIZAN-JIM VOSS POOL during a special ceremony on Jan. 17, 2015.
Krizan coached the Washington Men’s Swim Team from 1957-1973. Voss led the Warriors from 1973-1998. Between them, Krizan and Voss coached Washington to 26 state swimming championships!
“Their record of success is unmatched in any high school sport in Iowa history,” noted Dr. Ralph Plagman, Washington Principal. “The naming of the pool is a tribute to their amazing accomplishments.”
The dedication event was the finale to a reunion weekend for the Warrior Men’s and Women’s Swimming Programs.
