Four Years After The Gian Zumpano Aquatic Center Completed, Belen wins State Championship - Again.
The Gian Zumpano Aquatic Center was built in 2018. A project led by Zumpano Patricios Founder & President, Joseph I. Zumpano, the Aquatic Center was built in memory of his late brother, Gian Zumpano.
This past weekend, the Aquatic Center hosted the state water polo championship between Belen Jesuit (20-0) and Dr. Phillips (30-0). Belen Jesuit came out on top. Belen Coach, Jimmy Aguilera, attributes the program's improvement to the construction of the Gian Zumpano Aquatic Center: "Prior to [the aquatic center's construction], we didn't have an adequate training facility. Now, we have 60 to 65 players in the program. From that group, we can choose the best players for varsity...The aquatic center helps us in every aspect of our preparation."
