This photo was shared with me several years ago but I didn’t know who the individuals were in the photo. Only this past weeks I was given a copy of a newspaper clipping with the same photo in it with a little bit of background. Here is the language of the newspaper clipping.
“BENSON STAKE CHAMPIONS – Richmonud (sic) South ward girls were undefeated in eight games, which was good enough for stake honors. The team captain is Arlene Alvey; manager and coach is Marva Dawn Spackman. Left to right, (front): Janet Whitman, Louise Godfrey, Marva Dawn Spackman, Carolyn Spackman, Arlene Alvey. (Back): LaReta (sic) Anderson (sic), Elaine Bell, Jeannie Spackman and Hope Anderson. The Benson stake league has featured some fast girls’ games this season.
