In this photo the JV team is the group wearing the dark jerseys. Henry Peterson went to Roland for his Senior year and contributed much to their basketball success for that year. The “foliage” on the wall behind the team is an exhibition of various weeds.

No Pictures of the 1931, 1936, 1937 or 1946 Teams

In 1936 Milford beat McCallsburg in a basketball game with a baseball type score, 5-3: Milford scored one basket and three free throws and Burg only scored 3 free throws. Apparently only five players played for each team. Supt. Halverson was also the coach.

Back: Don “Jack” Borts, Jim Matters, Don Wakefield, Walter Jacobson, Lenard Jones, Kermit Sorensen, Coach Harry Arthur. Bill Sharpe was the leading scorer with his left handed jump shot and once scored 27 in a game. Missing from the picture is Wayne Olinger who played on the varsity as a Soph, Jr and Sr and was a starter as a Jr and Sr. On Tue 30 Nov 1937 the season opener was played against Fernald. The varsity game, which was played before a packed house, was “filled with thrills in a closely guarded contest”. Milford won 14-8.
