This has indeed been a very successful
for girls' athletics.
We were quite slow in getting our team
and our games scheduled but this delinquency was soon mastered and we
out with a firm determination to end the basket ball season with the
percentage. This was not easily accomplished for we have played some
teams and our scores have often times been too close for comfort.
Our first game this season was with Chadron
and as usual was our hardest. Their team was fast and nearer our size
any we have played. At the end of the first half the score was 4-6 in
of the Normal. We were not at all discouraged at this but weren't

referee we had to content ourselves by submitting to let their coach
This wasn't entirely satisfactory but it was the only thing left for us
do The privileges seemed to be decidedly one-sided and the game ended
Scottsbluff in the lead. This was our first time to suffer defeat but
consoled ourselves by thinking how we would have an opportunity to
with them when they visited our town the following week.
We gave them a fair deal and took
notice to have someone referee that was not interested in either
We out-played them from the very first and the score stood 12 to 36 in
Our percentage is much higher
theirs' and now since our basket ball season is ended we are proud to
that we lived up to our expectations.
