Being as interested as I am in Del Norte High School sports, it is fun to look back and see what they were like a long time ago.
(My friends say it was a long time ago that I was playing as a Warrior, but to me it does not seem all that far back.)
I was at the Historical Society Museum the other day, doing research for another story I want to write, when I saw a 1915 Warrior yearbook. I did not expect there to be an athletic section, but to my surprise there were two pages.
There was no football, so basketball was the sport of greatest interest. Since there were no schools close enough to play, there were no interscholastic games played, so an intramural league was formed.
Each class formed a team. The freshmen and the sophomores were the most serious. Back then Del Norte did not have a gym so all the games were played outdoors.
The freshmen and sophomore set up a three-game schedule. The first game was won by the freshmen by the score of 8-4. In the second game the sophomores turned the table and won 4-2.
