A memorial service for Arthur Francis "Reds" Hucht, who coached swimmers for more than 50 years, will be held at 1 p.m. Jan. 21 at Calvert Hall College High School. Mr. Hucht, who was 95, died of a stroke Tuesday at his daughter's home in Spotsylvania, Va. "He was a fascinating man, a one-of-a-kind guy, independent and strong-willed," said former Evening Sun sports editor Bill Tanton, who first met Mr. Hucht in 1956. Born in Baltimore in 1916, and raised on Chester Street, he began swimming as a boy and competed in Playground Athletic League events.

Arthur Francis “Reds” Hucht, who coached Calvert Hall's swim team from 1960 to 1997, died Tuesday at his home in Spotsylvania, Va. He was 95. Hucht, who at 80 was the oldest high school head coach in any sport in the Baltimore area when he retired, won 23 championships in the Maryland Scholastic Association. A Baltimore native and 1935 Calvert Hall graduate, he moved to Virginia after his wife died in 2010. "He touched a lot of lives," said Marc Fisher, who swam for Hucht in the late 1970s and early 1980s and later worked with him at various swim clubs.

Calvert Hall did a terrific thing this week in naming it swimming pool in honor of longtime coach Arthur "Reds" Hucht."Reds is a wonderful man," said the high school's president, Brother Kevin Strong. "He's been our swimming coach for 32 years and he's still here every waking minute."Hucht turned Calvert Hall into a swimming power and for just about all of his more than three decades with the team, the Cardinals have either won the Maryland Scholastic Association championship or finished second.

The swimming meet was only one event old and already the handwriting was on the wall.This time it didn't say Loyola. It said Calvert Hall.Last month, in the first confrontation of the Maryland Scholastic Association powers, Loyola stunned Calvert Hall in the opening event, the 200-yard medley relay. With that impetus, the Dons went on to upset the defending MSA champions, 94-92.But in the rematch before a standing-room-only gathering at Calvert Hall's Hucht Pool yesterday, the Cardinals captured the medley relay and ultimately won, 97-88.

When a gymnast who aspired to be a diver came out for the Calvert Hall swimming team as a freshman, coach Reds Hucht offered a few words of advice."All you have to do is learn to land on your head instead of your feet," Hucht said. "Divers are swimmers with their brains knocked out, but you still have some left because you're starting late."Today, after four seasons of landing on his head, Jon Repetti, who lives in Howard County, still has brains left.He also has some titles. Runner-up his first two years in the Maryland Scholastic Association championships, Repetti won the title as a junior and captured the event in the first Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association Championships earlier this month.
