View of the Past: A game of OTHS donkey basketball in 1946

This week’s view features a night time game of donkey basketball played on Nov. 9, 1946 in the old O’Fallon Township High School gym which is now part of Marie Schaefer School.  The OTHS Industrial Arts Club was pitted against the American Legion basketball team.  Donkey basketball is simply playing basketball while riding donkeys on the gym floor.  The photo was taken by Ken Miller who covered many OTHS events in those days.
