Twenty-six Years Ago

Port Gibson High School Lady Waves

Port Gibson High School Lady Waves

I have been catching up with lots of my high school classmates recently on Facebook and I felt inspired to post a few photographs from those days. This is one my mother took 26 years ago of the Port Gibson High School Lady Waves. This was my last year of official, organized basketball. PGHS was not able to field sports team for the ’83-’84 season. (It’s a long story.)

This is one I took the previous spring, when our team won the district championship. We later lost in the semi-finals of the state tournament to Lafayette County. This photograph placed third in a Girl Scout art contest called “What Makes Me Smile.” It was also published in a Macalester College Alumni magazine. My sister, Emilye, (No. 14) and my friend, Francene, (front right) both went to Macalester. It is fun to think back on those days.
