Fairfield, despite its upset of West Noble, was just 11-10 that winter with a lineup featuring Bob Alvarez, Donn Huber, Doug Thwaits, Gary Weybright and Fred Kurtz.
That was the first season Fairfield and Goshen met in boys basketball. The Redskins won 69-65 in what would be the last career victory for Cosgrove, a Hall of Famer.
How long will Valley’s 84.2 per cent record stand up. The guess here is quite awhile.
