CASCO HIGH SCHOOL AT ALGOMA 
The Training School basketball team played their first game on the local
floor 
December 14, 1917. The Casco team did well but the Training School team 
outplayed them in every phase of the game. The score at the end of the first
half was 8-2 in favor of the Training School. The final score was 24-8 with
the 
local boys in the lead. This game was marked by the fast playing and team-work
of the Training School boys. 
ALGOMA HIGH SCHOOL VS. D. K. T. S. 
The second game was played December 20, 1917, at the local hall against the
team from the Algoma High School. Members of the High School team expected
to win an easy victory but were forced to change their ideas long before
the first 
half of the game was finished. From the very beginning of the game our boys
had the ball in their possession and managed to keep it most of the time.
Al- 
though outclassed in their playing the High School boys showed by their attitude
that they were sportsmen and could play basketball. The final score was 16-11
in 
favor of the Training School. 
D. K. T. S. VS. CASCO HIGH SCHOOL 
On Friday, January 11, 1918, the Training School team journeyed to Casco
to 
play their first outside game. They were given lodging at the Du Pont Hotel.
Immediately after eating a good supper they marched up to the hall which
is only 
three-quarters of a mile away. The boys had spent a few minutes in practice
when the Casco boys put in their appearance and the game began. At first
it 
seemed as if Casco were to win an easy victory. They made five scores in
the 
first two and one-half minutes of play. Of course, this was before our boys
had 
warmed up. During the next two minutes our boys made six scores and kept
the 
lead after that. The score at the end of the first half was 10-7 in our favor.
The 
second half started with Casco's ball in play. Having great faith in their
own 
ball they expected to run away with the Training School boys but their hopes
were 
all in vain. The final score was 18-13, the Training School boys winning.
STURGEON BAY HIGH SCHOOL AT ALGOMA 
The Sturgeon Bay team, confident of winning a very easy victory, came to
Algoma on January 18, 1918. Their confidence was based on the fact that they
had beaten the Training School team in a practice game played early in the
season 
and believed they might easily turn the trick again. This game was begun
early 
in the evening because of the fact that a lecture was to be given the same
evening. 
At the end of the first half the score was 13-8 in Training School's favor.
Sturgeon 
Bay made an effort to catch up but it was made in vain, for our boys had
saved 
their energy especially for this period. "Oxy" started to cage
baskets and when 
the game ended the score was 47-18 with the Training School once more victor-
ious. 
Everybody, concerned, agreed that this game was a clean, fast one. Credit
