The Melrose Shamrocks WON the l937 Boys State Basketball Championship at a time when ALL SIZE schools competed for the ONE TITLE OF STATE CHAMPION.

Melrose's goal this year of the new millennium, was to bring home a SECOND STATE CHAMPIONSHIP TROPHY by winning the St. Patrick's Day Parade. MISSION ACCOMPLISHED ! JOB WELL DONE !

The l937 basketball game was re-enacted on the parade route, complete with a Melrose & Marshalltown ball team, referees, radio announcer blasting out the progress of the game, Leprechaun mascots, and a hugh following of Irish fans cheering the Shamrocks on to victory !
