The season of 1908 was perhaps the best the Normal has ever enjoyed. Not a game was lost on the local floor, while on the other hand we won from the great team of Wesleyan, which had such success at other places. The games lost on other floors were the result of playing under unfavorable conditions, such as the sloping floor at Shenandoah.
The schedule was started in none too auspicious a style, owing to the fact that the team was made up almost entirely of new men. As the season progressed, however, the improvement in team work became more and more marked, and the last four games were won easily, the last being the whirlwind affair in which the Normal played Wesleyan off its feet and established an equal claim with that institution for the championship of the state.

Xo mid-winter sport is the center of keener attraction than girls’ inter-class athletics.
This year, for the first time in the history of the Normal athletics, girls indoor base ball games were introduced, and this sport occasioned much excitement and fun on the part of the spectators.
Iii the first of these games, the Seniors defeated the Juniors after a lnrd-fought battle. The Sophomores carried off the “palm of victory” in the Sophomore-1 ’reshman game. The championship remained to be competed for by the Seniors and Sophomores. The excitement in this last game was intense, but at the critical moment the game was lost to the Seniors.
In basket ball, the Juniors had a great advantage over the other classes in having a team composed largely of first team substitutes. Both Seniors and Sophomores worked hard to win the coveted pennant, but the Juniors, by their excellent team work, carried off the honors.
There was a long fellow named Swenson,
Who used to be able to bat some He was never dismayed In all games he played And say but he made Kearney pant some!
