It’s not the best picture of the EHS 1923 girls basketball team, but you’ve got to love the uniforms.

1923 was an interesting year in history of women’s basketball.

The Women’s Division of the National Amateur Athletic Federation (WDNAAF) held its first conference. Over the next few years it tried to ban women’s extramural basket ball games and other sports from high schools, industrial leagues and  churches, because they were too competitive.

However, the following year, the Olympics added women’s basketball as an exhibition event.
