The four classes, Freshmen, Sophomore, Juniors and Seniors, played a series of basketball games. Each class played all the other classes, and the two teams that won the most games played the championship. The winning team received a 1925 basketball pennant.
(15) vs Sophomore (35);
Juniors (26) vs Seniors (9). On November 4, the Freshmen
basketball team played the Sophomores.
The game was played after school and many of the students were
present. It resulted in a victory for
the Juniors and Sophomores. The members of the Freshmens
team were: Forwards, Sprague, Levy; Center,
Hayden; Guards, McCullough, Perrin. The Sophomore team consisted of Forwards, Jenkins, Webster; center,
Sophs (8) vs Juniors (18); Freshman (11) vs Seniors (43). The second games of the series were played after school November 6. This time the Sophomores played the Juniors, and the Freshman played the Seniors. The Juniors and Seniors won the games. The Sophomore lineup was nearly the same. Bennett playing in place of Bush. The Junior lineup was the same as in the previous game. The Senior team: Forwards, Jenkins, Boscoe; Center, Ritchie; Guards, Kaley, Freeman; on the Freshmen team, McCullough and Sprague were forwards; center, Hayden; and Perrin were guards. Referee, Graf. Timekeeper, Phillips.
(22) vs. Seniors (5); Freshmen (2) vs
Juniors (32). November 9, the Sophomores played the seniors and the Freshmen played the
Juniors. The Sophomores
and Juniors each won their game, and they will play in the Championship. The lineups: Seniors forwards, Green, Kaley; center,
Ritchie; Guards, Freeman, Carr. Sophomores: Forwards, Jenkins, Webster; Center,
On November 12, the championship was played between the Sophomores and Juniors. Quite a little excitement was manifested among the students and the game was quite interesting. The teams were about evenly matched and could the Sophomores have made good all the chances they got at the baskets, the score would have been different. The Juniors won by a scant margin, the score being 10-12. On the Sophomore team much cleverness was shown by Bennett, the one-armed player, and all the other players did well.
Sophomores (10) Forwards: H. Jenkins, F. Webster; Center: Murray; Guards: Goodnough, Bennett
Juniors (12) Forwards: Smith, Miller; Center: Dygert; Guards: Babcock, Whitney

Football at G.H.S.
Owing to our withdrawal from
the Northern New York League at the first of the football season, there were no
football games with any of the schools comprising this league. However, there were games scheduled with other
schools, the first one being with
The next game in which G.H.S. participated was with St. Marys Academy at Ogdensburg, on October 17. The day was fair, and quite a few people turned out to see the game. However, the St. Marys team did not amount to much against our fast and heavy warriors, the final score being 53-0. The first score came in the first five minutes of play when one of the St. Marys men fumbled the ball. Goodnough recovered it and crossed the goal line for a touchdown. Shortly after this, Tuffy Hayden, our fast halfback, made another goal for another touchdown. In the second quarter the St. Marys line seemed to stiffen a little, and we scored but one touchdown, Smith being responsible for this. Three of the goals were kicked, and the first half ended with a score of 27-0. In the third quarter, Smith and Hayden each made a touchdown, and in the last quarter these two standbys each secured another six points. This half only two of the goals were kicked, and the game ended 53-0.
Smith and Hayden played very well in the backfield, while Goodnough, Ritchie, Reynolds, and Gale performed well in the line. However, the whole team worked in perfect order, and it was only through the efforts of every man that we were able to get a good score. In the last of the first half, Turnbull was substituted for Bennett, and in the last quarter, the substitutions were: Homer for Goodnough, Bear Jenkins for Whitney, B. Hayden for Jenkins, and Jenkins for M. Hayden.
The line-up for the
Left End, Goodnough, Homer; Left tackle, Ritchie; left guard, Bennett; Center, Phillips, Melrose; Right Guard, Gale; Right Tackle, Reynolds; Right end, Whitney; Quarterback, Smith; Left halfback, Hayden; right halfback, Carr; Fullback, Melrose, Jenkins.
The lineup for the St. Marys game:
Left end, Goodnough, Homer; left tackle, Ritchie; Left guard, Bennett, Turnbull; Center, Phillips; Right Guard, Gale; Right tackle, Reynolds; Right end, Whitney, Jenkins, Hayden; Quarterback, Smith; Left halfback, Hayden, Jenkins; Right halfback, Carr; Fullback, Kaley.
There were only two other games scheduled, one with Watertown and one with the Most Holy Rosary School of Syracuse, but some of the football boys backed down on the job, and there were not enough fellows coming out for practice to hardly make a team. A meeting of the boys was held one after school and it was decided that they would play no more football this year. Thus ended our football season. It was felt among the student body that we might have had an excellent team because we had the best of coaches, but some of the players refused to make this possible.
