Mahomet High School offered the boy's sports of basketball and track. This is evidenced by the IHSA hardware won
in each sport (www.ihsa.org
). It is probable that baseball and possibly football were also offered. Conference affiliation and the above "Quick
Facts" information are being sought.
One excellent run defined the early success of the boys basketball program at Mahomet High School. The
team of 1932-33 made a run all the way into the Elite 8 in the old one-class IHSA basketball playoffs. It took
the team that would eventually win it all, Harvey Thornton, to knock them out of the playoffs. The MHS boys would later
bring home two District titles before their merger with Seymour. Only the record of the 1932-33 squad is available.
If you have the records and coaches names of the other great Mahomet teams please share the information with us.
