Location: Orange, New Jersey
Captain: Brookey Goode
Home Court: Douglass Auditorium
Nicknamed the Jersey Girls and using the Douglass Auditorium in Orange as their home court, their roster included team captain and right forward Brookey Goode, or “B. Goode,” as she was known.
They made history on February 26, 1910, as one of the squads in the first recorded basketball game ever played between two independently organized all-Black women’s teams, competing against the New York Girls.
