Inducted in this year’s hall of fame, Bill Fulton (‘89) is honored for his accomplishments as apart of the Cherry Hill High School East swim team. Swimming all four years of his high school career, Fulton swam varsity and won first place at the NJSIAA Meet of Champions for the 400 freestyle relay.
With Jay Dillenscheider (‘87), John Marion (‘86) and Sean Killion (‘86), and Fulton, the four of them set the state record and earned an “All American” Award. As well as setting a state record, Fulton was selected three years in a row during high school for the “All South Jersey” swim team.
While Fulton planned on swimming at Tulane University, he unfortunately did not get a chance to as the school’s swimming program was dropped. However, Fulton continued to be around water as he rowed for two years at Tulane.
Currently, Fulton teaches English at Eastern Regional High School and is entering his 24th year of teaching. Still using his passion from the East’s swim team, Fulton has continued to embrace swimming through coaching the Eastern Swim Team for nine years.
