Basketball season is just starting, and it’s interesting to see the history of basketball at our school. Here we see a picture of the Hampton basketball team 100 years ago, with uniforms that are much different from our own, to say the least. We also see a change in language, with the players being called, ”basketeers.” This article from the Aurora Republican is a summary of the York college district tournament, where the Hampton team won the silver loving cup. The article goes over how each game in the tournament went, with the final game against Waco being described as,”the big noise of the entire tournament.” Looking back, we can see how important basketball is to our school, and how the sport has changed over the past 100 years.

Here in Hampton, we take a lot of pride in our community, and we make sure to show it every year on community pride day. Looking back, we’ve been doing community pride day almost since we’ve been keeping scrapbooks. Here we can see some junior high students from the 85-86 school year, and similar to all recent years, they’re helping their community by raking leaves. This tradition has done a lot to ferment a strong feeling of community among the students and cooperation with each other to reach a common goal. This is always a huge event, and today we have students who are so committed that they bring dump trailers and leaf blowers to get rid of the leaves as fast as possible. As a smaller town, we’re also a lot closer as a community, and for years and years past, we’ve made this evident by getting together to clean the community. Ultimately, that’s what community pride day is all about, taking pride in living in our community, and we’ve done so for decades.
High School basketball begins Friday at BDS (Davenport). Girls JV: 4:15. Boys JV: 5:00. Girls Varsity: 6:00. Boys Varsity: 7:30. Thank you for your continued support of Hampton sports and activities!
