March Madness of Yesterday: Women's Hoop History at Gordon

When a new sport swept across the country at the turn of the century, it took Gordon with it. The school’s first sport was basketball, and both men’s and women’s teams formed in 1924. Two years later the 1926 women’s team, pictured here, played a grand total of seven games.

March is women’s history month, and what better way to celebrate than with a stroll through the Gordon College archives?! This photo—provided by Gordon’s new archivist, Rachel Trent—shows the first hoop women at Gordon.
