The Westlake Historical Society would like to share a photo from our Historical Photo Vault.

On April 5, 1940, the Dover Girls Athletic Club hosted the All-Star Game. The team was divided into two teams, Navy and Notre Dame. Admission to attend this event was a mere five cents. All the girls who made the All-Star team were presented with all-star pins before the game.

The game referee was Mrs. McDowell and the umpire was Mrs. Schumaker. The scorer was Ruth Larsen. The ushers for the Notre Dame side were Marge MacPherson and Phyllis Spooner, for Navy they were Lucy Phinney and June Skivington.
