Holyoke High School Girls’ Team

Rated Cleverest Girl Forward in Holyoke High School

the sophomore girl’s team of the inter class basketball league at Holyoke High School is very proud of Miss Edith Musante. Since Miss Musante joined her team, they have lost but one game, this being to the Post graduates by two points. She was forced to refrain from playing basketball the early part of the season on account of illness. Miss Musante was the unanimous choice for one of the forward positions on the All Star team selected at the conclusion of the league. Coach Fred Weber of the Paper City high school, who has seen several girl teams in action thinks Miss Musante to be the finest of them all. not only does she possess a keen eye for the hoop but she is in a class by herself when it comes to passing.
