Leicester – Sports play a significant part in the school experience from those who watch it from the stands to those who are active participants on the team, and that hasn’t changed much over the years.
This week we have a picture with what is thought to be the 1923-24 Leicester High School Girls Basketball Team. The picture was found at the Leicester Library in the collection of articles, photographs and historical documents assembled by Frances Lorraine Alexander Miller.
According to the caption found with this picture, most of those in the picture have not been identified. Attempted identification includes first on left side Gertri MacShook, then fourth from the left Mattie Ella Wells Henderson, sixth from the left Burna Hampton and seventh from the left Reva Plemmons.
Can you help with identifying any of this team? If you can, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 828.252.5804.
