The 1st District Tournament in 1975

In light of Eric's posts on 1975, and the ongoing district playoffs, I thought it would be interesting to take a look at the various boys' basketball playoffs from that year. Here is the First District, which consisted of the same four teams in 1975 as it does now (all games at Carlisle County)

Carlisle Co. 96, Fulton City 63 
Hickman Co. 65, Fulton Co. 59 
Carlisle Co. 68, Hickman Co. 55

Prior to the 1966-67 school year, there was a historically black high school in Hickman (the county seat of Fulton County) known as Hickman Riverview.

Hickman County H.S. was formed from a merger of Clinton Central and Fulgham High School after the 1958-59 school year.

Carlisle County H.S. was formed from a merger of the Arlington Aces, the Bardwell Indians, the Milburn Blue Devils, and the Cunningham Wildcats after the 1956-57 school year.

While the available records are not entirely clear, it appears that Fulton County was formed after the 1956-57 school year by merging Cayce and Hickman High Schools.
