NoteThe academy's girl's basketball team still wore bloomers when this photograph was taken in 1914. The junior college sponsored women's varsity athletic teams in the 1920s but the women's teams were disbanded and replaced by intramural activities in 1929. North Park College eliminated the women's teams because it was considered "unladylike" for women to compete against teams from other schools.
