"Coached by A. Cheney, with M. Bunker as the faculty manager, the Girls' Basketball Team membership roster included (left to right) A. Sanders, E. White, M. Potter, L. Buckle, Captain M. Humphrey, C. Woodman, E. Wall, and L. Allen. According to historical records, girls were becoming more involved in sporting activities during the 1920's than ever before. Shortly after the 1928 season, girls' basketball became an interclass sport, rather than a varsity sport." -- Text from calendar by Jayne M. D'Onofrio.
