According to Jack Poole, in his book Decatur County Girls Basketball 1976-1997:
"In the 1920's Decatur County high school girls played the preliminary games prior to the boys' contest. This continued for several years before interest waned and the girls' game was relegated to intramural play."You can see a photo of Greensburg High School's 1911-12 girls' basketball team here, and you can read more about girls' sports in Decatur County here.
