M. Hunter key player for Wyndham High School A against Seward Downs in basketball game in 1936......
A women's outdoor basketball game between Wyndham High School A and Seaward Downs attracted much interest and there was a great number of spectators who witnessed the best game of the year in 1936. Both teams played good open basketball, and there were many delightful moves. Because Wyndham High School A won 10-8, they were the first holders of the B Grade cup.
The teams were:
Seaward Downs; Mrs Palmer, J. Preston, D. Weir, E. Morton, R. Morton, E. Lorimer, E. Hawke, L. Mawdsley, W. McKenzie.
Wyndham High School A; M.McKerrow, J. Rabbidge, M. Hunter, B. Falconer, M. Harley, L. Stewart, W. Smith, A. Maude, M. Stirling.
Seward Downs had the better first 10 minutes but after that it was all Wyndham High School, although their shoots found it hard in the strong wind. The half time score was 4-4.
After half time there was not scoring for 6 minutes due to the hard defending of both teams.
Outstanding for High School were, M. Hunter (forward), M. Harley (centre).
