Wallace Pool

Hugh Wallace, an ambassador to France (1919-1921), was responsible for setting up a trust fund for institutions that could apply for assistance grants. In 1956, the College of Puget Sound applied and was granted funded.

The construction of Wallace Pool was then completed in 1957. Wallace Pool is a great competitive arena with six electronic touch sensor timing lanes and home to Puget Sound’s perennially strong Men’s and Women’s swimming programs. The pool is accessible for students and community members for lessons and recreational swimming. In 2007, the university celebrated 50 years of swimming achievements.

Nate Backes
Seattle, Wash.
Bishop Blanchet HS

Nate Backes went on a tear last week, tallying at least one hit in all four games the Loggers played en route to a 3-1 record and a series sweep of Lewis & Clark. Backes had multiple hits in three of the four games and went 3-for-4 in the series finale against the Pioneers on April 13. In that contest he ripped a double and legged out a triple, falling just a homer short of the cycle. With the base knocks he brought in three RBIs for the Loggers while scoring two himself, accounting for five of the Loggers' 11 runs on the day. In all he tallied eight hits, five runs, and eight RBIs last week, hitting for an even .500 average. Thanks to the hot bat, he leads the Loggers in batting average, RBIs, doubles, homeruns, and is tied for the lead in hits. Backes and the rest of the Puget Sound baseball squad travel to Forest Grove, Ore., for a three-game series at Pacific this season.
