Peru Prep Basket Ball
WHEN Coach Roy Wonder called for basket ball candidates, some twenty industrious Bobkittens turned out to serve on the maples. Only two letterinen, Captain I. Williams and Applegate, were available for active service. However, Dasher turned out to be an ace in the hole and Newton teamed well with Applegate at the guard posts. Pate and Pugh, alternating at center, completed the team which won seven out of thirteen games played during the season.
Sickness and ineligibility handicapped this green team, but during the season the Prepsters amassed a total of 218 points to their opponents’ 195. They won six out of seven of their home games and one out of five on the road. The other defeat of the season was at the hands of Nebraska City in the State Sectional Tournament held at Peru State Teachers College.

:Peru 'Prep Football, 1928
THE Bobkittens, under the tutelage of Roy Wonder, fought through to a very successful season, despite the fact that Dame Weather seemed to be always against them. Nearly every game was played in a rainstorm or in the mud, in fact the weather was so bad that the Auburn game on Thanksgiving day had to be cancelled.
With only some nineteen men, six of whom were lettermen, reporting for practice, Coach Wonder developed a team which, playing only two games at home, won four games and lost three though they were outscored 66 to 43 by their opponents.
Dasher and Captain Applegate were the young cats’ main offensive threats, while the Williams brothers, Captain-elect Newton, Pate, and Monteith were the mainstays on the defense.
