The Zehntbauer Swimming Pavilion opened in 1969. It sits on the site of the old gym, which was destroyed by a fire on Sept. 12, 1966. Zehntbauer is named for two friends of the College, C.R. and John Zehntbauer, founders of the company that became Jantzen.
The Zehntbauer Swimming Pavilion houses an eight-lane, 25-yard pool with one and three-meter diving boards. The pavilion, with its new fully automatic Daktronics timing system, has been the site of an NAIA National Swimming Championship meet.
Zehntbauer also features a new state-of-the-art Daktronics scoreboard that made its debut in the 2004-05 swim season. There is room for 300 specatators at swimming events in the Pavillion. Brand new starting blocks we put in during the summer of 2012.
