Alvin High School definately offered boys basketball. The school also produced a STATE CHAMPION in boys track and
field! It is probable that baseball was also offered. However there is VERY limited information on the athletic
program If you have any information you wish to share please write to us via e-mail.
The IHSA website shows Alvin High School winning a District title in boys basketball. Unfortunately the team record
and coaches names of this and other successful Alvin High School teams are not available.
1927-28 District Champions
Boys Track & Field
"A student from Alvin High School, believed to be William E. Bivans, in 1919,
placed First in the Mile Run, at the Boys State Track and Field, Class B Championships. On the
IHSA Records his name is spelled Bevans, with no first name listed. With the school now closed, and possibility
that the student records could be in Hoopeston, or Rossville, or even in Bismark, might turn up verification of enrollment.
The 1920 US census, shows a William Bivans living with his parents and brother, in the village of Alvin,
in Ross Twp., Vermillian CO. There is no surname of Bevans listed for Vermillian Co., 1920."
