Glory Days of Basketball

Banner- Cambridge City Wampus CatsBefore area school districts consolidated, basketball rivalries were strong and the weekend game was a "can't miss" event. The Wayne County Historical Museum is reliving those days with a temporary display of memorabilia from Wayne County's current and former high schools. The exhibit will be on display through the end of March. For those Richmond Red Devils who reminisce about their IHSAA State Championship win in 1992 over Lafayette Jefferson, you can now see the entire game on YouTube! And a final bit of trivia...did you know that Richmond's Tiernan Center is the 4th largest high school gymnasium in the country?
