AB: In this source is an article originally written for Maclean's magazine, January 15, 1929. Author Frederick Watt, delves into the impressive 25 year reign of the Edmonton Grads girls' basketball team. In 1914, J. Percy Page began to coach a team of Commercial High School girls in the newly established sport of basketball and, after winning the Alberta championship in 1915, they began their unprecedented winning streak that would last up until their retirement in 1940. Financed only by themselves and public-spirited citizens of Edmonton, they traveled across the globe winning many championships and titles.
