The major indoor athletic and convocation center at Thornton Academy, William Shepherd Linnell Gymnasium, has served the school’s students and the greater community since its opening in 1963. In addition to acting as a practice and competition venue for TA basketball teams for over fifty years, Linnell Gym is also utilized for school assemblies, spring commencement exercises, and wellness classes. The gym also plays a major role in the life of the greater Saco community and has hosted a variety of community and social events such as the Kerryman’s Pub Road Race/Mary’s Walk, the Children’s Winter Carnival, and the annual college fair.
