Allendale High School Building - 1949

Submitted by Michele Loeffler

                                   The History of Allendale High School
 
Allendale (population 528) is located on Il. Route 1, about 8 miles north of Mt. Carmel. This places Allendale in southeastern Illinois, in the northeast portion of Wabash County. Allendale is approximately three miles west of the Indiana state boarder.
 
Information is needed regarding the town of Allendale and it's school system. The high school was probably established in the late 1800's/early 1900's. It was in the mid 1980's that talks of closing Allendale High School and merging it with nearby Mt. Carmel High began. These talks became a reality after the 1986-87 school year.
 
Some information regarding Allendale High School were provided to us by former student Paula Logue:
 
"I attended Allendale from 2nd Grade through 9th Grade. Allendale High School consolidated with Mt. Carmel High School in the Fall of 1987. That was my first year attending MCHS. They stopped using the old building and gym at that time.  The old building wasn't destroyed by the tornado January 7th, 1989. It did endure extensive damage and it was decided to tear it down. 
 
The old gym did have bleachers on both sides. At one end of the gym was a stage where many plays and shows were performed. AHS had basketball, baseball, volleyball and other sports." 
  
Allendale continues to support a K-8 school in town.

Athletics
 
Allendale High School definitely offered boys basketball. It is thought the school also offered track, plus at one time offered football, baseball, and girls' basketball during the 1920's (according to alumnus Franklin Pemberton). During its' early years, the Yellowjackets played on an outdoor court that was the same place where the baseball team also played, before moving indoors to a converted church building, then eventually to a gym at the school.
 
Allendale was a member of the Little Ten Conference. During the middle and late 50's, they were a "powerhouse" in that conference and area. If you have any further information to share regarding Allendale High School athletics please e-mail us at eganann@sbcglobal.net.
 
Boys Basketball
 
The Allendale High School basketball team won seven District titles during its existence. Two titles each were won in the 1930's, 1940's, and 1950's with the last title coming in 1961. One bit of information was offered to us by Gary Spicer:
 
"Their coach during that time (1950's/1960's) was Dell AtkinsonAtkinson went to Mt. Carmel to coach during 1960-62 seasons. He then went back to Allendale and picked up where he left off (in 1965)."

Other notes about the 1955-56 Yellowjacket squad from Frank Pemberton:

Norm Gher (Class of 1960) was the first AHS basketball player to ever receive a division 1 school basketball scholarship. But he did not receive the first scholarship in basketball, with that honor going to Franklin Pemberton.(Class of 1956). Franklin Pemberton's scholarship was for basketball with JC or small colleges out of high school. ALL were recruiting him to play point guard. Franklin was offered a Division I scholarship while playing for the 183rd Red Raiders from Herzobase at Herzogenaurach, West Germany in the spring of 1960. In fact, thirteen (13) members of this team were offered scholarships! The Division I school was attempting to acquire a ready-made team. A team that had played military teams and international teams. Franklin's team went 53-11 in 1958/59.
Also from the basketball team of 1956, the four all-conference players were all baseball pitchers. Mr. Johnson had one hellacious curve, that made most batters have a "chicken" leg. Mr. Loeffler was just a smart player and befuddled most of the batters. Mr. Cisel was just fast and had his batters neutralized. Mr. Pemberton was fast and had a "sharp" slider.
 
Don't recall their records because baseball was a secondary sport during the reign of basketball. Until high school, these four were fast softball pitchers, then all switched to baseball. They all played volleyball together. All six of the players from the Class of 1956 had most high school math classes together. It goes on and on.

P.S. Frank Saltsgaver, (a freshman) was the player that scored the 100th point for Allendale in the 106-40 win over Grayville on Dec 9,1955. Am actively hunting the two other 100th point scorers.

**Information from Don Gher:
 
"I see that my friend Frank Pemberton passed on some photos etc. My dad was a member of the first team to win 20 games photo and our cousin Harry was in the earliest known photo. BTW, our coach, Dell Atkinson, recently was named to the Illinois Basketball Hall of Fame. I am in Seattle, but wrote a letter of recommendation for him, Frank spearheaded.
 
NOTE: The following item was submitted by Frank about Dell Atkinson's induction into the IBCA Hall of Fame:
 
"Dell Atkinson (Coach) will be inducted (posthumously) into the Illinois Basketball Coaches Association Hall of Fame on April 24, 2010. He was selected on the second attempt at the behest of myself and several coaches who believed that he should be in the HoF. Dell succumbed in August 1969. So after 40+ years, he has been honored by peers and fans. He also coached a few years at Mt. Carmel and WVC (Wabash Valley College). He had coached at Allendale for 22.5 years."

The Allendale Yellow Jackets had a long, storied athletic history before the school was consolidated into Mt. Carmel.  It won its first Illinois State District Tournament title in 1936 with Harold Diehl as the coach. The team was 16-10 behind All-District players Captain Jesse Gher, Richard Andrews and Ted Andrews. Other members of the team were Harold Alsop, Vern Howe, Robert Litherland, Ray McMillen, Raymond Mullinax, Elmer Smith and Edwin Winter.   
 
1968-69  Allendale High School's basketball team was coached by Dell Atkinson from the late 1940's, with a short tenure coaching Mt. Carmel from 1960-62, until he passed away shortly after the school year ended in 1969. In his final season, the team finished 14-10 with a 9-5 second place Little Ten Conference record. They also won Third Place in the prestigious Wayne City tournament after upsetting top-ranked, and Little Ten Conference champ, Mills Prairie 73-69 by coming back from down 20. The team was ousted in the Allendale District Tournament by Hutsonville 72-70 on a controversial offensive goal tending call at the end of the game. Arch-rival St. Francisville lost both games to the 'Jackets that year, but won the District and gave eventual Regional and Sectional Champ Lawrenceville a battle before losing late. Ironically, Lawrenceville was led by former Allendale star Walter "Butch" Wolfe, who had transferred after his sophomore year.
 
The 1968-69 team was well-balanced offensively led by All-Conference Gary Hadra's 18.6 points per game, followed by Clyde Lewis at 11.6 p/g, Rick Andrews 11.0 p/g, Don Gher 10.4 p/g and Randy Walker 9.1 p/g. The final starting five, along with Bernie Lewis, were Coach Atkinson's pallbearers. Other players on the team were Randy Atkinson, Cliff Blair, Tom Woods, Danny Hadley, Steve Faith and David Bailey.
 
Two of the all-time best basketball players to come out of Allendale High were Joe Leighty and Ron Simmons, whose sons Ricky Leighty and Marty Simmons were both named Illinois' "Mr. Basketball" while playing at Lawrenceville."
 
Boys Baseball
 
The Yellowjackets played baseball as well. This story was relayed to us by Wayne City HS alumnus Gary Spicer
 
"In the spring of 1955 I played in the Little Ten Conference baseball championship game against Allendale. What a game. Luckily we batted last 'cause we won 16-15 in 7 innings. We got down to 2 outs in the bottom of the 7th when the catcher tipped one of our batters' swings on the third strike. We rallied and won the game."
 
From Don Gher (Class of 1969):
 
1968-69  9 - 2  (6 - 2 in Conference Play)   
Allendale was a perennial baseball power with several conference championships. Tom Andrews, who followed Dell Atkinson as basketball coach, coached the baseball team for many years. In 1969, they were 9-2 and 6-2 in the conference as they tied Grayville for the Little Ten crown before losing to the Bisons in a play-off.  The team was led by three-time First Team All Little Ten Conference pitcher Gary Hadra (a 5-2 record), three-time First Team All Little Ten Conference centerfielder Don Gher (a .407 batting average) and two-time First Team All Little Ten Conference catcher Clyde Lewis (a .346 batting average). The rest of the line-up was made up of pitcher/infielder Richard Bates, first baseman Rick Andrews, second baseman Steve Faith, shortstop Harold Sanders, third baseman Bob Gher, left fielder David Bailey, right fielder Cliff Blair, outfielder Garland Sanders, outfielder Chuck Gher, infielder Gail Grounds, infielder Richard Seaton and infielder Mike Andrews."
 
FOOTBALL & GIRLS' BASKETBALL
 
According to AHS alum Franklin Pemberton (class of 1956), the school offered both sports in the late 1920's/early 1930's. Very little is known about either team; however, the football team was coached by Gentry Adams with the following lineup (photo is below):
 
Left end - Manson Payne
Left tackle - Harry Gher
Left guard - Herb McClain
Center - Randel Talley
Right guard - Randel Payne
Right tackle - Don Price
Right end - Willard Hipsher
Backs - Bob Smith, Fred Sparks, Wayne Smith, and Mark Shepard
 
Adams coached at the school wherever he was needed and also helmed the boys' basketball team during the same era.
 
The girls' basketball team also represented the school at the same time there was a football program, but it possibly could have been discontinued due to the lack of girls' interscholastic sports at that time, which was monitored by the Illinois High School Athletic Association (now IHSA). Some of the players for AHS in the photo below were Mary Francis Fox, Mona Courter, Christella Reiber, Maxine Baird, Nora Mae McFarland, and Jean Andrews.

MEMORIES AND FACTS OF ALLENDALE HIGH SCHOOL
 
From Dan Yelch:
 
"My mother attended Allendale HS in the mid-1930's.The old high school gym, along with the rest of the old school building, was destroyed by a tornado in the late 1980's. The newer gym, built in the 1960's remained and a grade school was built, after the tornado, and attached to the gym. The old gym had a short floor, with two mid-court stripes, and very little room between the end line and the brick walls. There were bleachers on both sides, there was a balcony also which had a few rows of bleachers that also ran the entire length of the gym."
 
From a very knowledgable Southern Illinois basketball fan who states that Allendale was involved in a tournament game whose outcome was decided by the influence of too much sunlight:
 
"In the middle 50's, Wayne City and Allendale were playing a semifinal game in the Wayne City Holiday Tourney on a Saturday afternoon. In the closing seconds Allendale's ball handler was stalling the ball in the closing seconds of the game.  He turned to look at the clock and he looked directly into the sun coming in the gym from an uncurtained window. He was either temporarly blinded from seeing the clock or was startled by the sudden gleem of the sun that it caused Wayne City to either get the ball or the clock ran out with Wayne City having the lead and the spot in the championship game against Woodlawn. How time flys."
