Girls' Athletics

The Girls' Basket-Ball Team was organized during the latter part of October, 1924, with Miss Block as coach. Louise Matteson was appointed captain of the team and Harriette Andrews, manager.

The team consisted of: Mildred Washburn, center; Bernice Mitchell, right forward; Louise Matteson, left forward; Sylvia Bruder, right guard; Joan McDonald, left guard; and our "subs" can't be beaten.

Boys' Sports

We entered this year in a new school, with many possibilities offered to put Hannibal on the map in various sports.

To start the thing right an Athletic Association was organized between the girls and boys with the following officers elected: President, George Longley; Vice-President, Mr. Ecker; Secretary and Treasurer, Louise Matteson.
