Yes, it's that time of year again and the basketball season is in full swing. The little wooden footballs that were hung on the electric poles throughout town have now been replaced with little basketballs with the names of the players on them. Red is the color of the day as the Indians prepare for battle. Last weeks local paper had the pictures of all the players and their positions listed in the paper along with a schedule of the games to be played. It's an important part of small town life and it keeps the winter blues away.
In honor of the Clark County Indians, I am posting a picture to boost their morale. My husband and I found a book from 1914 in the walls of our old house and this picture was inside:
This was the Kahoka Basketball team of 1914. The game sure has come a long way since then. Doesn't it make you grateful for the inventions of polyester, weight lifting and Nike??
So, here's a shout out to the team for a great season. Wonder if those old uniforms are still around somewhere?? Maybe we should find them for a reunion of some sort..........but you'll get that in a small town.
