Class of 1959

We, the Class of 1959, celebrated our 50th class reunion on April 24 and 25, 2009. This blog is about sharing memories of our class reunions and a long ago life at our Alma Mater's, S.F.X.A. and S.A.H.S. Good memories of days gone by but not forgotten! A gift to my classmates. ~Marian Love Phillips ~

SFXA Girls Are Champs

~Sure-Shot Shirley - One reason for St. Francis' success this season was its "Triple-S" attack by "Sure-Shot Shirley", meaning Shirley Farish and her seldom-missed charity tosses. During the regular season, Shirley averaged between 15 and 20 free pitches per game. In above photo is one of her shots ripping the basket to perfection. Action occurred in last nights championship battle against Redwood. Also against Hazel Walker last night in a free throwing exhibition at City Auditorium, Shirley made good on 14 out of 15 yet got beat as Hazel had 15 for 15.
