I found this photo (above) among some items from the Bureau County Hall of Fame celebration of 2004.  I believe it was given to me by Benny Morey.  I recognize Benny, Bill Baird, Ron Childs, and Don Miller.  Can you give me the names of the other kids?  Contact me at dpnanninga@comcast.net if you can!

Written by Shirley Braete

Shirley Braete had every right to be excited about the basketball team of 1946-47. The boys would win the District tournament that year and finish with a spectacular record of 28 - 4!
