Champion Basketball Team 1912-13

Debbie Norton Johnson's great uncle Almer Norton is in the back row, 2nd from the left. Almer's Sacramento High basketball team were the league champions in 1912-13. The Norton kids (Bill, Ray, Frank, Almer, and Doris) all grew up in the old Broderick neighborhood. Since there was no high school in the town of Washington students chose to attend either Sacramento High or Woodland High. Many chose Sac High because it was easier to walk to school
