Relive and retell the glorious moments celebrated in Fisher Gym with custom items crafted from the game-used court. Proceeds help purchase new school equipment.

Our Story

Mira Costa's Fisher Gym was home to more than 65 years of accomplishments. Now for a limited time, you can own part of this historic court and keep the memories alive for generations to come. Just like the moments that happened on court, no two items are exactly alike. Plus, each item comes with a Certificate of Authenticity with a diagram detailing its location on the court. Proceeds benefit Mira Costa High School and help purchase new gym equipment for new generations of athletes.

Mira Costa High School Fisher Gym

1953 - 2018  

The original Mira Costa campus greeted students in September 1950 with 22 classrooms, a study-hall-library-assembly hall structure (later to become our cafeteria), a shop building, an administration building, a hall with 730 lockers, 10 outdoor volleyball courts, 8 tennis courts, 9 outdoor basketball courts, 2 grass playing fields, and boys’ and girls’ locker rooms, but no gym.  

With extremely limited funding, the District began with a paired down version of gym plan: the gym, stage, and additional locker rooms for both boys and girls. The original contract was for $317,985; funds from a November 1951 bond earmarked an additional $95,800 for two corrective PE classrooms, office, public lobby, student restrooms, and an equipment storage room. An additional $5,244 was approved that same month for backboards bringing the grand total for hard construction costs of the original gym to $413,785.

The original architect for Mira Costa’s gym, Samuel E. Lunden, went on to enjoy a 70-year career during which he designed the Doheny Memorial Library at USC, the Pacific Coast Stock Exchange Building, and part of L.A.’s Biltmore Hotel.  After WW I, he was among 50 young American architects and engineers sent to rebuild France. 

The gym finally opened in 1953, the same year Carl Fisher began as a math teacher and coach. Fisher became Mira Costa’s principal in 1963 and held that position for 18 years, the longest tenure for a principal in the school’s history.  The gym and several trees on campus were eventually named after him to honor his outstanding interscholastic athletic program and unwavering dedication to rigorous academic standards. 

Through the years, Fisher Gym has been the site of numerous school championships including Girls Volleyball 7x State Champions and National Champions in 1985, 1989, 2006, and 2007. An impressive list of NBA, WNBA and Volleyball players enjoyed high school careers in Fisher gym through the years including:

NBA/WNBA

  • Bill Laimbeer - Palos Verdes, Detroit Pistons, 2x NBA champion
  • Lisa Leslie – Morningside, Los Angeles Sparks, 2x WNBA champion
  • Paul Pierce – Inglewood, Boston Celtics, scored more than 25,000 points in NBA
  • Byron Scott - Morningside, Los Angeles Lakers, 3x NBA champion
  • Paul Westphal – Redondo Aviation, Phoenix Suns, NBA Finals

Volleyball

  • Eric Fonoimoana, Olympic gold medalist in beach volleyball
  • Alix Klineman, 2018 Manhattan Beach Open women’s champion, former Gatorade National High School Volleyball Player of the Year
  • Holly McPeak, 3x Olympian, holds 72 beach volleyball titles

Mira Costa is currently undergoing construction on the new $39-million gym, made possible by Measure EE, which is expected to be completed in fall 2020.

Many an hour were spent in our beloved gym....also, left a lot of sweat, skin (floor burns) and, yes, some blood. But I took away so many fantastic memories that have lasted a lifetime. Great teammates, great friends and great times! Go MiCoHi Mustangs.

FAQ's

When will my items ship? Items typically ship within 2-4 weeks after the campaign end date. While we do our best to only feature items with reliable inventory, the delivery timeline may extend if your items encounter backorder issues. We'll let you know as soon as possible if this occurs, in which case you'll have the option to switch your item with another similar one, or wait for replenished inventory. Also, please note that IgniteCX's liability of the product is complete upon delivery, as confirmed by the shipping company. When will my credit card be charged? If you are making a donation, your credit card will be charged immediately after you place your order. If you are purchasing items, your credit card will be processed within 2 business days after the end of the campaign, rather than at the time of the original order. If, for some reason, this campaign does not reach its batch order minimum requirements, your item order may be cancelled. If you purchased items and made an additional donation, your total contributions will appear on your credit card statement as two separate transactions. How will this charge read on my credit card? Look for the descriptor text on your credit card statement for purchases and donations made through this website to appear similar to this example: BT [CAMPAIGN NAME#####].

Some credit card issuers may display a status of “recurring” on your statement. This does NOT mean that you will be charged multiple times for your donation or purchase. It is simply an indicator for the credit card issuer of how our payment gateway, Braintree, handles payments.
