The 3d District Tournament in 1975

Back in 1975, the Third District Tournament featured all of the schools in Graves County, and it was always played at Mayfield. This used to be my favorite district tourney. We don't have all the scores from 1975, but here's what we do have: 

Mayfield defeated Cuba 
Symsonia 62, Fancy Farm 59 
Wingo 81, Farmington 61 
Lowes 78, Sedalia 74 
Mayfield defeated Symsonia 
Wingo 65, Loews 61 
Mayfield 81, Wingo 58 

After the 1984-85 school year, Graves County was formed by the merger of the Farmington Wildcats, the Fancy Farm Golden Gophers, the Lowes Blue Devils, the Sedalia Lions, the Symsonia Roughriders, and the Wingo Indians.

After the 1976-77 school year, the Cuba Cubs were absorbed by Sedalia and Wingo.

Prior to the 1966-67 school year, there was an African-American high school in Mayfield known as Mayfield Dunbar.


  1. WYMC didn't start broadcasting until 1976, so I wonder how Mayfield got the happy news of their Cardinals' march through the district.

  2. I vividly remember that at one point in the early 1980's, Matthew listened to the entire third-district tournament on the radio. But I don't know what station he listened to.
