Boilermaker Aquatic Center Photo Tour

Feb. 12, 2002

Above, the exterior view of the new Boilermaker Aquatic Center. The center was dedicated on Oct. 26, 2001, and is a joint venture between Recreational Sports and Intercollegiate Athletics.

The new Boilermaker Aquatic Center is a state-of-the-art facility with features that make it one of the finest in the nation. In the foreground, the Doris Z. Holloway competition pool is shown with the diving well and platform tower at the south end.

Shown here, the Doris Z. Holloway Pool was made possible by the generous contributions of more than 1,800 alumni and friends, led by the Holloways themselves.

A view from the 10-meter platform shows the beauty of the center and the extensive seating area of the gallery.

The Purdue diving team has enjoyed huge benefits in the new aquatic center. Above, the diving tower with platform heights of 1, 3, 5, 7.5, and 10 meters is flanked by the 1-meter boards on the left and the 3-meter boards on the right.

Above, the 12-person spa will be a great asset to the divers who wait for their turns during competitions.

Seen here are the starting blocks for intercollegiate competition on the south end of the Holloway Pool. Donors' plaques also adorn each lane as friends were given the opportunity to name a lane with their donations.

With what's believed to be the largest block letter on the bottom of a collegiate pool in the nation, the diving well of the Boilermaker Aquatic Center is a facility of which Purdue can be proud.

Purdue Director of Intercollegiate Athletics Morgan Burke stands on the 1-meter platform. Burke was instrumental in building the Aquatic Center and said of the facility, The completion of the Boilermaker Aquatic Center puts in place the last piece of the puzzle to move water sports at Purdue into the upper echelon of the Big Ten and nation.
