Sectional Basketball Author to Speak in Frederic
Join retired Spooner teacher and coach Carlo Kumpula at the Frederic Public Library on Thursday, November 1 at 6:30 p.m. as he discusses his book, “When All Roads Led to Spooner.”
From 1943-1971 all schools played in a single tournament, regardless of enrollment. Winning the sectional was quite a feat as there was only one champion from all of the schools north of Eau Claire. For that reason, Kumpula refers to it as the “Golden Age” of high school basketball.
He will share excerpts from his book along with additional photos and stories about teams and players; as well as some of the highlights and controversies from 29 historic years of high school basketball.
St. Croix Falls in 1950, Frederic in 1964, and Cumberland in 1965 were local squads that won sectional titles. In all, teams from 45 different schools played in the tournament, which for 27 of those 29 years was held in Spooner. Kumpula welcomes former players, coaches, and fans to participate and share memories of those great days.
All pre-school children welcome!
