We are certain that Mlton High School offered boys basketball. We are fairly certain that baseball and track were
also offered to the boys of the school. We are need of this information as well as the school's fight song, team
records, and coaches names for Milton High School sports.
The Milton High School Mustangs' boys basketball program was a true force to be reckoned with in the late 1930s
and early 1940s. There has GOT to be a great coach story or a great story of some sort to explain the incredible
run that MHS enjoyed.
During a ten year period from 1937-38 through 1946-47 the Milton High boys won a total of six District Championships,
two Regional Championships, and a Sectional Championship. This Sectional Championship led to Milton's lone appearance in the IHSA
Sweet 16 nder the direction of Coach Matt Moore. This was a very rare feat for a District Champion!! Great Job
Milton High School!
The information we have available from the IHSA website (www.ihsa.org
) is listed below. As mentioned above, team records and coach's names of this and other great Milton High School teams
are being sought.
