From the Skidmore News (Skidmore, Missouri), December 1, 1921:
Play Clearmont Here Tomorrow Night.
High School Boys Have Defeated Their Opponents — Girls Never Played.
Both the boys’ and girls’ high school basket ball teams will meet the teams from Clearmont on the home court tomorrow (Friday) night.
The boys defeated the Clearmont boys at Clearmont Armistice Day by the score of 34 to 23, and they expect to do the same thing again tomorrow night. The boys have been playing good ball, when they try, and since they have had the indoor court have been able to practice regularly.
The Skidmore girls have never played Clearmont, and in fact have only played two or three matched games. While they are all beginners this year, they are playing well and will put up a good fight with the Clearmont girls.
The boys’ and girls’ first teams will play basket ball with Clearmont Friday night. Remember we are playing in the apple house now. We want your approval of the game. The only way to show it is to be there.
The girls are improving and will put up a good fight.
