Harrison Pool History:

In 1924 the Harrison brothers, both MMA alumni, played a role in the growth of the Academy.  Frank '08 , the older of the 2 brothers, donated $5,000 to the building fund of the Virginia Lee Harrison Hall - named in memory of their mother. Tragically, in 1928 the then completed pool was dedicated to Franks younger brother, Tom,  who was killed in a car accident on his way to the Academy to assess work on the gymnasium.

Construction of the Harrison Pool occurred in phases. The original plans eliminated the pool, changing rooms and the apartment for a new physical education instructor from the original proposal. Harrison Gymnasium was constructed and completed in the spring of 1924, but the pool project did not become realized until 1928.
  • The first year the Academy swam competitively was 1932.
  • Beginning in 1933, the Academy's swim team over the course of the next 10 years experienced an epoch span of success and won 80 of its 85 dual meets.
  • At least 18 times Academy swimmers broke national interscholastic records.
  • The greatest triumph occurred in 1936 when the team was declared the national interscholastic champions.
  • For 10 years, Massanutten was named Virginia State Champions.
