Eatonville High school had girl’s team almost 100 years ago. They outfits have changed quite a bit — who knew you wore hats. Also, tennis shoes were yet to be invented.
Back then, it was mostly six-on-six basketball with three “forwards” and three “guards”.
Girl’s basketball started growing in popularity in the 1970s. Today, nearly all women’s basketball leagues (pro, college, and high school) play by the same basic five-on-five rules.
