Girls' Basketball-Season 1924-Z5
The Girls' Basketball team of Creston High School had a very successful season
this year. Due to the fact that several new players were on the team, the opening half
of the season did not look very promising and nearly all defeats resulted for Creston.
but under the coaching of Miss Harrison, and the flne support of the student body of C.
H. S., we rapidly improved, and brought to C. H. S. the last six games of the season as
complete victories for us.
The first game of the season was with Sterling on Dec. 5. It was a losing fight but
well played, the score being 28 to 8.
The second game was with Congress on Dec. 12, this we won, 21 to 13.
The next evening, Dec. 13, we played Rittman and did our best, but they won 15 to 12.
On Dec. 19 we met Doylestown on the home floor and were defeated, 21 to 9.
The next game was with our old enemy, Seville, on the Seville floor. We were
again defeated by a score of 15 to 8.
The following night, Jan. 10, we played Congress on the home floor, we completely
outplayed them, winning by a score of 34 to 8.
On Jan. 16 we journeyed to Apple Creek. Although we were defeated by
five points, we kept Apple Creek on the jump until the whistle blew.
On the seventeenth of January we played Burbank on the home floor. This was one
game in which we were completely outplayed, being defeated, 25 to 12.
Creston again met Sterling at Sterling on Jan. 23. We were again badly defeated.
The score was 37 to 10.
On Jan. 30 we met Seville on our own floor. This time we proved to S. H. S. that C.
H. S. was on the map. VVe won by a score of 23 to 8.
Creston played their second game with Doylestown on Feb.6, and we came home vic-
torius by a score of 17 to 13.
Feb. 20, we played Apple Creek on the home floor. This was probably the most in-
teresting game of the season. The score was tied until the last minute and then Cres-
ton won by a score of 15 to 13.
On Feb. 27, we traveled to Rittman, and as it was the last game, Creston girls de-
cided to make it a victory, which we did, by a score of 26 to 9.
On March 14 the C. H. S. girls entered the Wayne county basketball tournament
with lots of pep and a strong determination to win the games of that day. This determi-
nation was carried out and we came home that day with two victories: one from Dalton,
20 to 11, and one from Burbank, 13 to 8.
The next Saturday we returned to Wooster to play the semi-flnals of the tourney.
In this game Mt. Eaton defeated us by a score of 14 to 8.
Following the usual custom, we again held a High School Class Tourney in the
gym on March 27. The first game. between the Freshman and Sophomore classes, was
4 to 2 in favor of the Freshmen. The second game, between the Junior and Senior
classes was won by the Juniors, 28 to 3. The finals, between the Freshmen and Juniors
resulted in a score of 35 to 8, making the Juniors winners of the tourney.
