Tough Loss for the Arcadia Trojans

February 2, 1945 was not a good day for the Arcadia High School basketball team. They played against Bear Lake and would have won except for some unfortunate footwork on the free-throw line. My father, Nelson Finch, played in this game, and no, he wasn’t the one who messed up. The clipping on this post is the first paragraph of the article in the February 6, 1945 Manistee County Pioneer Press. The amazing thing to me is that this four page paper had twenty-nine column inches devoted to this game that ended 26-25. The NBA doesn’t get that much press! I put the whole article on a page of its own where you can read it by clicking here.
