1973-1974 girls basketball team to be honored

It’s been 40 years since the first “modern” Milaca High School girls basketball team took the floor and this year’s coaches and players are planning to honor the 1973-74 team.

The 2013-14 girls team will salute those 1973-74 pioneers Tuesday, Dec. 10, when the Wolves host Kimball. Current Milaca girls coach Dave Leom is coordinating the event.

All former Milaca girls basketball players and coaches are encouraged to attend. An area will be set aside at 5:30 for former team members and their guests to renew friendships and share basketball memories. Leom welcomes photos, programs and other memorabilia which can be displayed at the gathering.

The junior varsity game between Milaca and Kimball begins at 6 and the 1973-74 team will be acknowledged after that game, with the varsity game to follow.

“We feel it will be a fun event and a great way to honor those who were there when the girls program started,” said Leom.

Following is a list of players that Leom is still trying to contact. If you have contact information let that person know about the event, or contact Leom at 320-982-7214 or by email at [email protected]
