Borden Gym Picking the Right Cleats




Construction on Borden Gym was started in 1900 and opened officially on March 22, 1902 with a basketball game against the Harvard Freshmen. It replaced the gym that had been in Bulfinch Hall, which was now to become a Dining Hall. In 1909 the students started a fund to build a pool, and by the end of 1911 the pool was open in a new wing. It has since held many events not the least of which was SAT Testing. Coach Harrison shows Bucky Sides, Class of 1961, a cleat shoe to go with his practice uniform. The Academy has offered a wide array of athletic equipment over the years, including megaphones for your favorite cheerleader.
