The first team played all eight games at the West Main Street Armory on the roller rink and at the College gym on a dirt floor. A School board member rented the Armory twice a week for practice and games. (According to Betty Plank, Ashland's premier historian, the benefactor was probably the president of the school board, P.A. Myers.) The A's uniforms were Red and White, thus the colors became their nickname. The only senior was the Captain Austin Edwards. They played no outside opponents, and the eighth grade team proved to be a stiff opponent with their leading scorer Eben Tallentire, who starred for the YMCA in future years. The Yearbook reported that they had few faithful fans, and the newspaper recorded that the season was a success with a profit after all the expenses.
