Dale News Nov. 23, 1984: 1937 Dale Aces, A Trip Down Memory Lane

ALE’S GOLDEN ACES OF 1937 – Front from, from left: Coach Hurst(Windy), Livengood, Ralph (Robin) Thopre, J. Robert (Red) Ritchie, Allen (Ike) Brooner, Louis (Pootry) Wahl, Bill (Wille) Painter and student manager Raymond (Oscar) Schum. Back row: Lloyd (Ruby) Winkler, Ralph (Mose) Wahl, Vernon (Boss) Rice, Edward (Star) Hollander and Gervase (Toots) Hollander

The aces lost to the Central Bears in the regional finals after beating the Tell City Marksmen in the semi-finals. The games were played in the Agoga Tabernacle in Evansville as Central gym (where normally the games were played) was under water due to the 1937 flood. Ralph Thorpe was kind enough to share this picture with our readers.
