Lois Childs' High School Sports Memories

Contributor: Todd Millett Created: 1 month ago Updated: 1 month ago

I visited Grandma Lois tonight and asked her to tell me about her high school basketball experience. When she played, girls only played half court. In other words, the guards stayed on one half of the court to play defense and the forwards stayed on the other half for offense. Crossing the center line was against the rules. Grandma played forward and made lots of baskets. The girls' teams didn't play against other schools, just against each other. Her school had four girls' teams, one for each grade. Sophomores always played against the freshmen and juniors always played against the seniors. After the girls' games, they would always stay and watch the boys play their game for the week, which was a lot of fun. I didn't know this but Grandma told me she also played softball, as well as volleyball until she had to have surgery for carpal tunnel syndrome. She always wished she could play tennis but there was never a tennis team to play on. To this day Grandma is a big sports fan. She particularly loves watching basketball and tennis.

The Great Depression was a severe worldwide economic depression that took place mostly during the 1930s, beginning in the United States. The timing of the Great Depression varied across nations; in most countries it started in 1929 and lasted until the late-1930s. It was the longest, deepest, and most widespread depression of the 20th century. In the 21st century, the Great Depression is commonly used as an example of how far the world's economy can decline.

The Space Race refers to the 20th-century competition between two Cold War rivals, the Soviet Union (USSR) and the United States (US), for dominance in spaceflight capability. It had its origins in the missile-based nuclear arms race between the two nations that occurred following World War II, aided by captured German missile technology and personnel from the Aggregat program. The technological superiority required for such dominance was seen as necessary for national security, and symbolic of ideological superiority. The Space Race spawned pioneering efforts to launch artificial satellites, uncrewed space probes of the Moon, Venus, and Mars, and human spaceflight in low Earth orbit and to the Moon.
