1903
A very interesting game of basketball was played at Turner Opera House Saturday evening between the Volga High School Girls and the '02's of Elkader. The Elkader team played the more scientific game and were easy winners, the score at the end of the first half being 4 to 1 in their favor, and at the end of the game 9 to 5. The teams lined up as follows:

Volga -
Helen Whitford, C.
Ada Whitford, F.F.
Lizzie Brabrandt, B.F.
Gusta Brabrandt, F.G.
Frances White, B.G.
Elkader -
Amella Becker, C.
Kate Kramer, F.F.
Carrie Schmidt, B.F.
Eva Jack, F.G.
Anna Stemmer, B.G.

After the game light refreshments were served to the guests from Volga. About 30 of Volga's young people were over to cheer for the girls. Receipts at the door were over $30.
