Hull High School had one awesome season in boys basketball and had one athlete place in the State Track Meet under the
old one-class system. It is probable that HHS also offered baseball during its existence. If you have any information
on the great teams of Hull High School's past we are hopeful you will share it with us.
The Hull High School boys won two District Titles and had one GREAT run winning a Regional, Sectional, and making
the Elite Eight under the old one-class system. In fact the 1935-36 HHS boys and Coach E. L. "Gene" Ihrig
finished the season at 31 - 2 losing to eventual State Champion Decatur 30 - 27 in the quarter-finals!
What an incredible run by this small town. The excitement must have been bristling in town with the team's accomplishments.
We are looking for a photo of the team and any newspaper articles from the area covering their great season. The other
two DIstrict title teams are listed however team records and coaches names are not available.
