This Day In History: 1937-02-10
Spring Valley High School’s Ralph Sneden almost singlehandedly took the measure of the Don Bosco basketball team in a game at the Valley’s Gym. Don Bosco’s team, then known as the Polish Legion, had defeated Spring Valley 39 to 37 on the Ramsey court earlier in the season. This time the score was 29-27 in overtime, with Sweden scoring 2h of the Valley’s points. Domkowski scored 12 and Janeczek, 10 for Bosco. Bosco’s coach Father Francis praised the efforts of his team. Critics blamed the defeat on the lack of a “standing guard” on Bosco’s squad.
