We believe that Exeter High School offered boys basketball, competing with other schools in the area and in
the IHSA State Tournament. We believe it is possible that track and baseball were also a part of the sports program
at Exeter High School.
School team nicknmae, uniform colors, fight song, coach's names, team records, and other items would be a welcome
addition to the Exeter High School page.
We can imagine that the kids from Exeter had a very active time at Exeter High School. Dances, chorus,
band, plays, and clubs were all likely a part of the EHS experience.
