Chuck Fruit Aquatic Center

Posted: September 22, 2014

EHS Splashes into History
by Zain Pyarali & Drew Bradley

It’s not very often that you see a high school in Illinois build its own Olympic-size swimming pool and connect it to their state of the art wrestling center.  But that’s just what District 7 did.

“This pool was a dream come true and I am very excited for it,” EHS head swim coach Christian Rhoten said. “It is very rare for a high school in the Midwest to have a facility like we have.”

The Chuck Fruit Aquatic Center is now up and running and the expectations for the pool couldn’t be higher. 

The pool is named after the late Charles “Chuck” Fruit, who was a graduate of EHS and loved swimming and diving.  The Charles & Sharon Fruit Foundation donated $4 million for the center last December, and the EGHM Foundation donated the rest of the money to pay for the $5.3 million facility.

This pool will not only be used for the girls and boys EHS swim teams but will also be rented out to the YMCA swim team, USA swim meets, major weekend long competitions and PE courses at the high school.

Rhoten said the overall revenue that this pool will make will be outstanding, mainly due to the fact of the 12 weekend long meets that will be held there.

“I think that the Chuck Fruit Aquatic Center will impact EHS in multiple ways,” senior Student Ambassador Lydia Davey said.  “Not only will we be having major swim events held there, we will also give lots of students the opportunity to learn a life skill through the new PE courses.”

The PE courses will be in full affect beginning next week when freshman enrolled in the class will have a three week swimming unit with each session lasting 25 minutes.

Assistant coach and 2006 EHS graduate Samantha Shaw will instruct the PE swim classes.

The class will be structured for strong swimmers to get in the pool and get a good workout in, and for weak swimmers to learn basic swimming and lifesaving skills.

Although the pool is 7 feet deep at its shallowest end, the aquatic center is equipped with teaching platforms to make the shallow end just 3 ½ feet.

“We anticipate a learning curve,” Rhoten said. “Eventually it will become standard, just like playing basketball in PE.”

The aquatic center features a large Nevco jumbotron as well as brand new touch pads installed into the wall, which is all a part of the state of the art Colorado Timing System that will bring spectators up to the moment results.

Shaw hopes that the pool will bring student interaction to a whole new level with swimming, to create a football-like atmosphere.

“I am very excited to attend swim meets,” senior Matt Zielonko said.  “Hopefully we can get a big student section and pack the house to make it as loud as possible inside.”

Finding a seat in the Chuck Fruit Aquatic Center shouldn’t be an issue at all.  The facility seats 499 people in the upstairs bleachers and 200 more down on the pool deck.

The first time you will be able to see all those seats filled will be on Oct. 14 when the Lady Tigers host O’Fallon in a dual meet.

“The pool is perfect,” Rhoten said.  “It’s a premiere pool for the premiere high school.”


Foreign Exchange Students are Welcomed!

Posted: September 16, 2014

Edwardsville High School is excited and proud to welcome three foreign exchange students this year! Lucas Jonk from the Netherlands, Mariya Kleshchova from Ukraine and Tilda Lidman from Sweden (pictured left to right) joined administration and faculty in a welcome luncheon to orient themselves with the school and faculty and to get to know each other and their respective host families better. EHS's foreign exchange student program has proved to be a vehicle for cross-cultural understanding and an opportunity for both the exchange students and our own students to become globally aware, broaden their horizons and make life-long friendships. We wish them an outstanding year full of growth and fun!"

EHS Interact Club partners with SIUE Rotaract Club

Posted: September 3, 2014

More than 600 lbs of plastic bottle caps have been transformed into a new park bench for the Robert C. Stille Edwardsville Township Community Park, otherwise known as Airplane Park.

Last February, the Edwardsville High School Interact Club partnered with the SIUE Rotaract Club to sponsor the A Bench for Caps (ABC) project with the goal of collecting 400 lbs of recyclable plastic caps and lids. Together, both groups reached out to fellow students, faculty, and community businesses and members to assist in collecting the plastic caps and lids. The clubs exceeded their goal and more than 600 lbs of recyclable plastic caps and lids were driven to Green Tree Plastics in Evansville, Indiana, which turned the plastic into an 8 foot park bench.

"Edwardsville Township Community Park is again the recipient of our community’s generosity," said Frank Miles, Edwardsville Township Supervisor. "The bench is a welcomed addition to the park."

The Edwardsville High School Interact Club is a Rotary sponsored organization for high school students that strives to better the lives of others in our community, country, and world. The EHS Interact Club displays the "Service Above Self" motto by immersing themselves into the community in a variety of ways. The EHS Interact Club is sponsored by the Rotary Club of Edwardsville.

The SIUE Rotaract Club is a Rotary sponsored organization as well for young men and women between the ages of 18-30, which bridges the gap between Interact and Rotary. The SIUE Rotaract Club achieves "Service Above Self" by developing leadership skills and completing community service as well. The SIUE Rotaract Club is sponsored by the Goshen Rotary Club.
