Beverly Bruins made it big

April 26, 2014
The Marietta Times

Nearly everything about the 1952-53 Beverly Bruins basketball team is gone except some of the players, the newspaper write-ups and pictures, the Bruins bear (mascot) and the stories that are still told around town. Five years after the team broke school records, people even questioned the removal of the old Beverly High School that included the gym where the Bruins had gained such fame. They said it had become one of Beverly's landmarks. But progress rules and the old building and gym were razed. This did not ruin our memories because those boys loved basketball and their story is here to stay.
