One of the real joys that comes from writing these columns is the interesting and often humorous information I come across while researching something totally different.
That’s what happened for this story. I was looking for the words for the school song we used to sing, when this interesting bit of Warrior athletic history was found.
I had contacted a former classmate that I thought might have the words I was looking for. She gave me a publication done by a group of junior students in 1951. She thought maybe the words were in it. They weren’t, but this work, titled ‘Warrior Hoops,’ had the history of the start of basketball at Del Norte High School.
Little did I know that Warrior basketball started in about 1920, not by boys, but by girls.
