girls basketball can easily be traced back in to the early
1900's throughout the country, this project is dedicated
to only the state of North Carolina and begins with the
year 1945. This year was selected since girlsbasketball,
as were many other activities, was discontinued or at
least curtail during World War II.
Carolina had an even 100 counties and over 600 county [rural],
town and city schools statewide. After the ending of the
second world war and things began to get back to normal,
virtually every county [rural] high school fielded a competitive
girls basketball team. The smaller town shools also had
the competitive teams but many of the citiy schools had
only intra-mural or Girls Athletic Association teams and
did not participate in competitve basketball..
