From the 25 Feb 1937 Simcoe Reformer:
"Penalty Shot Gives Simcoe Group Title ... Edith Weaver scores basket only minute before game ends ... a penalty shot by Edith Weaver, less than 30 seconds before the end of the game, gave the S.H.S. Girls basketball team the winning point in the final game in the WOSSA schedule here on Monday to defeat Kitchener-Waterloo Collegiate by a score of 16-14."

From the 18 Mar 1937 Simcoe Reformer:
"S.H.S. Girls Eliminated By London -- Simcoe cagers lose by 16 points on round in WOSSA series ... Isabel Blume and Irene Gettas gathered all the Simcoe points ... it is the first time in the history of the school that S.H.S. has had a basketball team go through to the WOSSA semi-finals."
