100th anniversary of Women’s Basketball at Queen’s.

Queen's University Women's Basketball, 1910.

This year marked the 100th anniversary of Women’s Basketball at Queens’ University. In light of that occasion the photo for the week of September 20th, 2010 is of that first women’s team. The following was written about the team’s first game:  “Tuesday, the 22nd [of November], was a notable day in the history of basketball in the University, for on that day, for the first time the Ladies’ Basketball team played before the public view ….  “The girls played beautiful ball. Short, fast passing, quick running, hard checking and some really splendid shooting, marked the game.”  Queen’s Journal, December 1st, 1910.
