Girlst Basket Ball..
The basket-ball season this year was successful
for the girls as well as the boys. The past few years
there has been no enthusiasm whatever over athletics
for the girls, and the little towns in the Vicinity had
gradually come to the conclusion that all the Benton
Harbor girls could do was to yell at a foot-ball game.
This year, however, probably because of the new
gymnasium, the girls turned out well for practice and
by the middle of the season had worked up a good
team. Mr. McClure was chosen manager and a game
was scheduled with Dowagiac, which had the reputa-
tion of having one of the strongest teams in this part
of the state. Notwithstanding the fact that the girls
had Ind little practice and no regular team had been
picked, the,l-Benton Harbor girls were willing to meet
Dowagiacfpn her own grounds. As might be expected,
a they were defeated by the score of 38-0.
v Undaimted by this overwhelming defeat, the
- girls wenfito South Haven two weeks later and there
played the fastest game of the season. Both teams
played a remarkably good game, and the outcome
was uncertain until the very end, when a cleverly
made basket turned the tide of victory in favor of
Benton Harbor, with the score of 11 to 12.
On the following Friday night a game was played
with the Country Girls, 3 team made up of high school
girls living out of town, which resulted in the score of
7 to 3 in favor of the hrst team. Another game be-
tween the two teams, played some weeks later, was
also a Victory for the regular team.
On February seventh a return game with South
Haven was played at the Searchlight rink, resulting
in a score of 4-2 in favor of the VlSltOI'S. Our team
was anxious to play off the tie, but Soutthaven
would not consent, probably thinking a tie more de-
sirable than certain defeat for them.
The next game was played with our old rivals,
St. Joe, who boasted an unusually line team and ex-
pected to utterly annihilate us. But pride goes be-
fore a fall, for although St. Joe did their best they
were unable to surpass the excellent playing of our
A return game was played with Dowagiac Feb-
ruary fourteenth, at the rink, and Benton Harbor re-
deemed her former defeat by a score of 6 to 2. A
third game could not be arranged.
The Berrien Springs Independents, a very strong
team composed of experienced players, desired a game
with our school and satisfied their expectations by de-
feating us, February twenty-flfth, by a score of 10
