Clean athletics has always hecn held in high esteem at the Peru Normal. The girls do not confine their energy in just trying out for class teams or first team. They take a great deal of interest in the regular gymnasium classes. So we may say their aim is not only for the goal or home-run. hut also for health and beauty. There are some good reasons for this. We have a splendidly-equipped gymnasium and able instructors.
Peru has always been proud of her girls first team in basket-ball. She can be justly proud of them this year. They were successful in all but one of their games. We may account for this by the fact that five out of the eight girls are Seniors. They worked out some fine team work, as is shown by their superiority over other teams. The girls’ team without a doubt can claim the championship pennant offered by the State Athletic Association.
In February the team and the coach. Professor Scherer, took a trip, lasting from the 10th to the 13th of February. They returned games played last year and also games played this year.
The evening of the 10th the team won from Elmwood high school. They enjoyed the visit at Elmwood, as they renewed acquaintances made at the Normal the year before.
On the evenings of the nth and 12th they played Cotner and Wesleyan, and of course won. The kind treatment of both officials and spectators was a pleasure to the team and coach. The girls enjoyed this trip very much. One thing which made the trip especially pleasant was the reception they received when they returned home Saturday evening. February 13th. A large crowd met them at the depot.
As they stepped from the train they were hurried to the east end of the platform. They were helped into the carry-all and about fifty boys pulled them up the Mount Vernon hill, stopping in front of President Crabtree’s home to give the school veil. There never was any doubt of the loyalty of Peru students, hut this is just one instance which proves that they are always loyal.
