This is the 1932 basketball team of the Sweetser Braves. Sweetser is a small town in Grant County Indiana. This photo celebrates the team's win of the Grant County Championship. The win is significant because Sweetser was a very small school compared to the others in Grant County. The people pictured represent the entire team. My father-in-law, Henry Williamson is seated on the floor to the left of the trophy plaque. On the other side of the plaque is Wayne West.
Seated L to R: Wendell Stilwell, Johnny Sterrenberg, Donald (Sleepy) Sullivan, Berndean Mitchell, Xen Mayne.
Standing L to R: Coach, Oscar Gilpin, Don Kendall, Charles Ancil, Wayne West, Charles Vance, Student Mgr.
Thanks to Henry Williamson's nephew, John Williamson, for remembering the names of all these players. | Click image for Comments.
