bringing it back

The glory years for the Monroeville Cubs took place in the late 1940's culminating in their only Sectional & Regional titles in 1948.  Following that Sweet Sixteen appearance the men in black & white brought home an undefeated regular season (24-0) before falling to Ft. Wayne Central in the Sectionals.  Now, the old Monroeville High School & gym is the Saint Rose of Lima School and under the watchful eye of principal Gale Powelson is undergoing a well deserved update.  On our five year gym discovery tour we have seen it all -- an old gym being torn down, a new one being built; gyms serving as community centers, elementary & middle schools; and gyms falling into disrepair and total decay.  But, this was the first time we had encountered a hardwood restoration -- a process that requires patience, skill and a high tolerance for dust (witness sander Darrell Cooper of Ft. Wayne).  Just another example of NE Indiana's desire to preserve their part of Hoosier Hysteria.  CGS.
