Overview

How did Indiana become a hotbed of basketball? It all started in the 1890s not long after James Naismith invented the game.

This book contains 48 articles about the first season of women's basketball in Fort Wayne, Indiana, located near the Ohio border, with a population of nearly 50,000 people. The city supported a thriving women's basketball league with several active teams.

The articles span from October 1896 to July 1897, from the birth of the league at the YWCA to hotly contested tournament games.

All basketball players and women athletes can trace their roots to these pioneers who dared to play despite cultural restrictions.

    !MORE NEWS!

    A small shecat steped in. "I think i found that mystery cat that works with darkdream. He/she posted in the main blazeclan camp for one of are kits, glimmerkit, to go to tree second result. I went there to see what he was doing, and he was telling glimmerkit to join i different clan! But its weird, the clan she was supost to join (dont worry, glimmerkit is back in her ture clan, blazeclan) was willowclan. They said that camp was moved to forest of trees. So i went there, and i found, aughtemstar, leafstar(new leader leader of hurracaneclan i think), stormheart and other cat. Why would three clan be all together? Willowclan, shadowclan, and hurracaneclan? Oh well, if you would like to see for you self, just go to tree second result, and forest of trees." - pebblepool
