(Holstein, Iowa) – From 1928 to 1932, Irene Helkenn Leonard played basketball for the Holstein High School girls’ team. She was elected captain in her senior year, a source of great pride for her.

 

Women began playing basketball in 1892, only a year after the game was invented. Irene remembers the three-section court that girls played on in those days. It wasn’t reduced to two sections until 1938.

 

Irene played jumping center which modern players call a guard. Even as women were considered “delicate” and “weak,” Irene always enjoyed sports, including volleyball and tennis. She took up golf after she and her husband retired from farming and moved to town.

 

“Basketball was so fun,” Irene says. “We had such a great team.”
