Varsity Swimming

Subject

Massanutten Academy (Woodstock Va)

Description

In 1940 the Massanutten Academy’s Yearbook noted this varsity swim team’s record was “enviable in the best inter-scholastic swimming circles.”

The school had dominated at eight swim meets throughout the mid-Atlantic and over fifty teams, including freshmen swimmers from North Carolina State University and the University of Virginia.

Ultimately they were defeated by Mercersburg Academy at the National Interscholastic swim meet in Philadelphia.
However, the school could take pride in the fact they won three different races at that completion and received the George Malphas trophy for the fastest relay team.

Team members for that year were, from left to right starting in the rear, Captain L.J. Fouts (coach) and Cadets K. Klein, D. Anderson, Brooke, Trumble, Hardman, R. Clark, D. Boyer, Hobert, Siwa, and Tilley.
