75 Years Ago


Items taken from weekly issues 75 years ago, from the Daniels County Leader, est. 1922 (continuation of the Scobey Sentinel, est. 1912).

February 28, 1946

Scobey 1st, Outlook 2nd Comertown 3rd–

Old Man Winter took a much needed rest for four days last week with the result that the District No, 1 Basketball Tournament at Scobey broke all records for attendance and receipts in the fourteen years of existence, grossing $3,339.73, compared to $2,386.40 for 1945 and $1,784.10 for 1944, both at Plentywood and previously the high marks. Fans, were little concerned with the receipts as they watched three of the generally conceded four strongest teams topple to defeat in the early stages of the play-offs.

When Scobey and Comertown met for the championship, events were at an anti-climax as the Spartans rolled over Comertown 64-37. Outlook, desperate from defeat by Medicine Lake took off its wraps and romped over Redstone, Plentywood, Medicine Lake, Peerless and Comertown to take second place and along with Scobey, qualify for entry, to the divisional tournament in Plentywood. The tournament here will probably be remembered best as one of upsets.
