After seeing a photograph of the men’s 1947-48 basketball team from Dunbar High School, Jewell Witherspoon Holland wanted to make sure the women’s team from that same year was duly represented, so she provided this photo and names for the Salisbury Post. Dunbar High was in East Spencer. The team included in the front row, left to right: Ruby Dalton, Jewell Witherspoon, Betty Kelly (co-captains) and Maggie Cherry. Middle row: Nona Bolt, Carolyn Kincaid, Earlene Mack and Annie Lois Kelly. Third row: Lillian Hall, Patsy White, Frances Bailey and Mattie Bell Brown. Coach Harry Koontz is standing in the back.
