The text associated with this photographs states the following:

THIS year for the third consecutive  time the Girl's Basket Ball Team brought home from the County Tourney the Vidette-Messenger Trophy, a fact which makes that silver basket ball our permanent possession. This victory marked not only the third consecutive championship won by a Portage girl's team but also the fourth since the County Tournament was inaugurated in 1924. Honor enough! But in addition Mildred Wolfe, our captain won the individual award given by Superintendent Cole, a small gold basket ball, which is given to the most outstanding girl player in the tourney. Eleanor Anderson was awarded the blue ribbon for having the best mental attitude of the team. The championship was the happy climax of a season marked by alternate victories and defeat. Only a few players were left from last year around whom as a nucleus was builded a team distinguished for its versatility -- many of the girls played two positions with equal skill: at least four of the girls displayed equal ability as scorers. The girls made a team of whom Portage is justly proud and as a team they leave the challenge to those who succeed them to uphold the reputation they have made.
