One thought on “Original Cowden Junior High and Pagoda Pool

  1. John McElligott July 13, 2020 / 3:11 pm

    I swam in my first swimming meet at the Pagoda Pool. I was 6 years old and swimming in the 11-12 year old group against my brother Tom, Olin Davis, Larry Parks, Jimmy Bebee, Wayne Kaiser, Bucky Herndon, Jerry Herndon, and the high point swimmer Brownie that won many meets along with Star Man (me). My only regret was that Rocket Man (Gere Gaige) was sill in New Mexico in water wing training. This was when Gere found he could only swim on his back.
