Boles Natatorium, located at 310 College Street, is home to the Centre Men’s and Women’s Swimming and Diving teams. The facility features a six-lane, 25-yard pool naturally illuminated by day through a series of skylights and windows, as well as an open-air back deck. Built in 1966, the pool and locker rooms have since been renovated to suit the needs of the swim and dive teams. The pool is also open for use by students, staff, and fitness center members.
The natatorium is named for Mr. and Mrs. Ewing T. Boles, Class of 1916. Boles, a native of Williamstown, KY, was president, CEO, and chair of the board of The Ohio Co., one of the nations first capital investment firms. He also served as chair of the Centre board of trustees from 1964-1969. After renovations were made, the pool was dedicated in honor of Craig W. Johnson, Class of 1975, during Homecoming on October 23rd, 2004.
