Here is another historic photo from former Plymouth Athletic teams. Pictured above is the 1942-1943 Pilgrim basketball team. The Pilgrims finished the year with a record of 10-12. They were coached by Art Thomas. They won the Marshall County Tourney but lost in the first game of the sectional to Bourbon.
Team Members: Row 1 (L to R) Mgr Hutchings, Harley Menser
Row 2 (L to R) Coach Art Thomas, Russell Steiner, P Rullman, John Mallory, John Drubert, Coach Dorrance Rogers
Row 3 (L to R) John O’Dell, Rich Ball, Lowell Kline, John Drubert, Eugene Chipman
Lowell Kline was the leading scorer averaging 7.4 PPG while teammate Rich Ball averages 7.1 PPG.
Pictured above is the football team. I have no information about year or record. The thing that caught my eye was the players wearing their leather helmets.
