Season Review - Review of Basket Ball Season (Kentuckian)
To prove that the past season has been a successful one we might take a look into the conditions that have existed all along during the time in which this particular sport was happening. At the beginning a very dark cloud of difficulties and and obstacles had to be cleared away. Just before Christmas, the time at which the team should be getting some good training in practice, the conditions were such that this necessary training was impossible of attainment. During the first half of January the same conditions prevailed. It was at this point that the first ray of light crept in upon the basket ball horizon and the dark cloud which hung over the situation began to break away.
Dr. Tigert was placed in charge of the team and its affairs. By immediate hard work he was able to make up for the lack of training of the team and soon had the team in first class shape. The cloud was almost cleared up at the time of the first game, which was played with the local Y.M.C.A. on January 24. Our boys had to subject themselves to a defeat by the score of 27 to 25, but not to a defeat in reality for they had outplayed their opponents at every stage of the game and that they had the ability to play the strongest teams in the South and win from them. So by this time the light was beaming brightly upon the field of basket ball.
The rest of the season was an unquestionable success. The boys won five out of the eight games played as may be seen from the list of scores.
The girls' team had to undergo some difficulties, one of the most importance being that of picking enough girls who would really take an interest in the game. Two teams could scarcely be gotten out and this naturally made practice weak. But through the untiring efforts of Misses Gastineau, Manager, and Pence, Captain, this difficulty was lessened. It is due to the fact that the High School girls often came out to practice; and to the efficient work of Dr. Tigert that our girls were the champions of the Girls' Basket Ball in Kentucky. Altogether the basket ball season was a success.
