The Cape Central Tigers won 56-42 over the home team Notre Dame Bulldogs in a packed gymnasium. The Tigers’ Paul Banks and Kermit Meystedt shared scoring honors with 17 apiece. Ray Glueck paced the Bulldogs with 15 and Tom Poston added 8.

Central Coach Bob Goodwin faced Notre Dame Coach Tony Rubich in the game.

Cape Girardeau Catholic High School opened in 1954. The name of the school was changed to Notre Dame High School in 1960. The building was used until 1998 when the new Notre Dame Regional High School opened.

  • Sports pictures are always a mystery for me.

    During the mid to late-60s, I covered sports for the Central High School publications where I went to school. I was also working part-time for The Jackson Pioneer and freelancing for The Missourian.

    Some nights I might shoot as many as three games. I seldom saw a full game. It was like reading a mystery novel with the first and last chapters torn out.

    School uniforms were pretty generic in those days. I have hundreds of photos where I not only can't tell you the names of the player, I can't tell you what town I was in nor which schools were playing.

  • I shot 106 teams from fifteen states last season; some of them multiple times. Obviously, I couldn't tell you all of them without checking my list...

  • Old high school sports photos from this area intrigue me. Considering where I come from (Chicago), old school high school stuff is the norm. but seeing it from a small town standpoint, you get to see how the fabric of a lot of these rivalries have developed over the years.

    Keep up the good work!

    I published some of my favorite high school photos as a metaphor for elections back in 2008.

  • 44 is Norman Robert Jr. Sometimes known as "Scob" or "Scobie" after his dad. And, like Kermit, is Grandpa to Dalton, Dylan and Kennedy.
