Fairmount High School competed in boys basketball as well as, quite likely, track and baseball. We are seeking
information regarding the better teams, athletes, and coaches in Fairmount High's history. We are also seeking the nickname,
school fight song, and conference affiliation of Fairmount High School.
The only sport listed with results on the IHSA website (www.ihsa.org
) for Fairmount High is the sport of boys basketball. The Fairmount boys brought home a total of three
District titles during their existence
. The last title came just two years before the school's closure.
Unfortunately the team records and coaches names of these and other Fairmount High School teams are not available.
A fan of this site and Fairmount High alumnus Mary M. Ellis
(Class of 1941) advises the coach during the
late 1930s and early 1940s was Walser E. Harms
