March Madness!

It’s that time of year again – college basketball takes over the airwaves and the lives of fans.  In the spirit of all things basketball, I thought I’d share a couple interesting photo from our collection.

These are girls basketball teams from Grove City High School.  Can you imagine playing in skirts with bows in your hair?  Ridiculous!
