Capron offered the boys sports of baseball, football, and basketball while the girls participated in GAA activities. The
Capron Vikings may not have won any IHSA hardware, but we are sure there were many successful seasons over
the years. If you have any information on the sports program at CHS please write to us so we may share it with others.
We know the Capron-Boone HS boys competed in basketball. A 1947 Alden High School yearbook located by Dean Bentley
listed the following basketball scores:
Capron - 50……..….Alden - 21
- 73…..…….Alden - 21 (@ Hebron District)
