Athletics have long been a prominent part of life in Bradley. From the 1930s through the 1960s, perhaps no sport was as prominent in Bradley as was girls basketball.
Below is a picture of the 1936 Bradley Senior Girls basketball team.
Front row, left to right: Maedran Wilson, Onie Wilson, Obie Colvin, Sis Hamner, Jessie Mae Burns, Elvis Wise, Mary Dees. Second row, left to right: Pauline (?) Wingfield (chaperone), Agnes Nolte, Dorothy McGee, Hazel Massey, Beatrice Wilson, Docia Morgan, W. R. Hudson (coach).
The four basketballs being held by the girls seated in the front row are labeled, from left to right, “County Champs 1934,” “District Champs 1935,” “County Champs 1936,” and County Champs 1935.”
