Lebanon High School defeated Anderson 24-20 to win the championship.

Note the glass backboards originally manufactured by the Nurre Companies in Bloomington, Indiana. The Men's Gym seen here was the first gym in history to have glass backboards.

This is the first photograph of a basketball game taking place in the Men's Gym that also appears in the Arbutus yearbook.
