From the school attic into our possession came a picture of the 1920 girls basketball team with their coach. Members of the team were the following- Edith Gardner, Pearl Mayo, Alma Huff, Delores Woito, Fay (Hill) Legler, Ola (Mayo) Randall, Laura Zweifel, Astel Hesse, Olive (Schultz) Og- glesby, and their coach Edna Bragg. Tnc game, played in halves rather than quarters, at that time had three courts rather than the two we now have. The forward and guard courts were at either end of the floor with a center court in the middle. The center court was played by a running and a jumping center. It was the job of tne jumping center to tip the ball to the running center who in turn passed the ball into the forward court. The forwards didn't work the ball up to the basket as they do today, instead they made more long shots. More practice time was spent in scrimmage and less in drills. The uniforms the girls wore at that time have been greatly changed. The uniforms consist-' ed ot purple wool micli blouses with black bloomers. The outfit was completed with long black stockings and shoes. In 1920, the boys team at Lu- Verne was very good and in order to find competition, often traveled groat distances. Ever> where the boys went the girls went also. Sometimes the towns were so (ar away that they had to go by train to get there. 01'- en times they stayed with the uoys and girls on the opposing team in order to make train connections back to LuVerne the next day.
