double A

Avilla and Ashley -- twenty miles apart and five Sectional titles between them but after consolidation, different futures.
The Avilla Panthers are now an elementary school, part of the East Noble School Corporation but in 1940-41, 1954-55 and 1955-56 they celebrated 20 win, Sectional championship seasons.  Their northeastern neighbor's gym, former court of the Ashley Aces, now houses a community center and city & police offices.  Before the Aces were combined with Waterloo & Auburn to form DeKalb High School they won two Sectional titles, 1945-46 & 1963-64 and then went on to win first round Regional games.  Two old gyms, steeped in history and still serving their communities.  CGS.
