Jon C. Dilweg '49

"Swede" Dilweg was another star athlete for whom time on the playing fields and the track was just not enough to fill his day. While at EHS, he won four varsity letters in both football and in track, and was elected to serve as a Monitor three years in a row-the last as Head Monitor, while he also served on the Honor Committee. He was President of the "E" Club, President of the Hop Committee, Head Waiter, and participated in numerous other committees and activities.
Swede Dilweg won his third varsity football letter as a member of Bus Male's undefeated 1947 state championship team, catching passes from Rufus Barkley. As alternate captain of the state championship track team, he won his third track letter, tying the school record in the high jump.
During his senior year, he won his fourth letter in football as an All-Metro end, breaking the school receiving record. As captain of the track team, he won his fourth letter and led EHS to the state prep school indoor championship, setting a school record in the 50-yard high hurdles. Against Woodberry, he set a school record in the low hurdles.
He holds the distinction of taking firsts in the high jump, long jump, high and low hurdles, shot put, and discus, as well as running the second leg of the victorious mile relay team-all in the same meet on April 14, 1949.
He scored 35 of Episcopal's 45 5/ 6 points, more than the opposing team's entire total for the day. Mr. Dilweg was awarded two Dulaney medals for track and later was a stellar athlete at Annapolis. A retired Naval Aviator, he lives in Pocatello, Idaho, and teaches high school.
