Good Hope High School had success on two fronts in IHSA competition. Boys basketball won three District titles
while the Drama Team won their District and advanced to the Illinois State compeition. We are confident there were many
more successful seasons and accomplishments aquired at Good Hope High School. Baseball and track were almost certainly offered
at the school. If you have any information on the Good Hope High School "Glory Years" please contact us at email@example.com
Can you say "back to back to back"? The Good Hope boys basketball team can and did. The three District titles
won by the school were won in three consecutive seasons from 1947 - 49. There is usually a "great player" or "great
coach" story involved in that type of streak. Team records and coaches names of these and other great teams in
Good Hope's historic past are not available.

*Also in 1948 the Good Hope boys basketball team nearly won the prestigious Macomb-Western Holiday basketball tournament,
losing the championship game to Macomb Western High School 43 - 42.
The English Department at Good Hope High School also deserves its own recognition. The Drama Team of 1944-45
won a District Title and advanced to the Illinois State Drama competition.
