Basketball Never Stops
With more than 28 buildings on our 35-acre campus, these are the select few that have become synonymous with the daily life of a Wasatch Academy Basketball student-athlete.
BRUNGER WILKEY GYM
For almost seven decades, spectators, players and coaches have understood the unique magic of the 16,000 sqft. Brunger Wilkey Gym that seats 850 fans. Built in 1951, the Brunger Wilkey Gym is iconic and timeless, with many comparing it to the famous Hossier Gym in Knightstown, Indiana. Home of the Geno Morgan basketball court, the Tigers have had an amazing amount of success in the Brunger Wilkey, winning over 97 percent of their games since 2009. The record of 77-2 is one of the best in the country on a current NFHS home court.
The court was dedicated to renowned Wasatch Academy basketball coach Geno Morgan, a legend in his own right, on September 11, 2015. During that same year, renovation work began on the interior. A new electronic scoreboard, new locker rooms and installation of a new floor gave Brunger Wilkey an updated look, while maintaining the original elegance. Then, in 2018, the lobby was remodeled, a state-of-the-art sound system and team weight room was added, a permanent 4’ x 8’ video platform was installed for visiting local and national sports media, professional branding of the lobby was created, and all the banners were replaced in the rafters.
During the summers of 2019 and 2020 major exterior upgrades will begin centered around a new parking lot and landscaping by renowned landscape architects and environmental planners David Bell and Joe Porter.
Activities Center & Multi-Purpose Building
Built in 2018, the Activities Center is a 35,000 square foot facility accommodating four indoor basketball courts, one outdoor basketball court, volleyball courts, badminton courts, a full size track, and an indoor soccer field.
Attached to the Activities Center is the original Multi-Purpose Building (MPB) that houses the Joseph Loftin basketball court, a fitness and weight lifting room, a rock climbing wall, a bouldering room, a dance studio, and our basketball coaching staff offices. Renovation plans for the 50-year-old MPB, including the installation of a new basketball court floor and upgraded amenities, are currently underway.
Loftin Lewis Student Center
The Loftin Lewis Student Center (LLSC) houses the buffet-style campus cafeteria. Students can watch TV, play video games, pick up their mail, buy school and personal supplies, purchase Wasatch Academy clothing, and play pool, air hockey, and ping pong.
