School Story:

Best day of my PVHS sports activity was when our golf team won the 3rd leg of 5 years on the 1950 Golf Trophy & retired it. In our final match we defeated Ridgewood & Pompton Lakes & I had a score of 79. I still have the article that appeared in the Paterson Evening News. In 1960 at our class reunion I found the trophy in a trophy case & took a picture of it.
