I'll assume I'm incorrect based on your post, but Leeds was never blue and green?

They went with Blue, Green, and White when they were with Wolford from 92-97 (Wolford was green/yellow). I think the green stayed on the jerseys for a little while longer, then changed to red when they went with Minnewaukan 04-09 (Minnewaukan was originally red/white/black)

That makes sense. I thought I remembered green when they were at state in the late 90s.

Tower City Maple Valley Raiders:
BUFFALO BISON
BUFFALO-TOWER CITY co-op name and colors
FINGAL BRONCOS


Buffalo Tower City went together in '75-'76 school year and were known as Buffalo-Tower City Bombers for 1 year. Believe their colors were royal blue & white. Became Maple Valley Raiders the following school year and school colors were blue-white-red. In '79-'80 school year, Fingal joined and name and colors remained the same.

Correct me on the mascot names too if I am wrong. I just need clarification on Elgin if they were the Fighting or Flying Dutchmen. Just trying to make my website a little better.

Thanks!


Hey yeah I've seen your site. Very impressive! I can help you out with one of the teams. The Wimbledon Wildcats colors were maroon and gold. The gold was just like how the Wimbledon-Courtenay Warriors gold is, and the maroon is just like Grafton/Linton/Fargo Oak Grove/Wyndmere. Hope this helps!

Strasburg St. Benedict Knights and Linton St. Anthony Saints were both red and white. The schools merged in 1966 and were Strasburg Emmons Central Knights and were red and white. Emmons Central closed in May 1985.

Balta Bobcats - Purple/Gold

Another member posted that Balta was blue and gold, but a look at the Balta Centennial Facebook group shows several old photos clearly showing purple and gold, and (just as important, as old photos can be tricky!) a written reference to a purple and gold pom pom.
