We have decided to discontinue the Pike Central news and take this website back to the original website that is dedicated to WHS and it’s alumni with some miscellaneous Winslow area photos. The way things used to be.

Little Known Honor for Winslow’s Dick Farley: Submitted by Hugh Schaefer, Basketball Historian, who has often provided this website with interesting basketball stories : Back in 1949 and 1950 when Winslow and Terre Haute had outstanding teams, with outstanding players, Winslow’s Dick Farley, and Terre Haute having outstanding twins, Arley and Harley Andrews. All of Indiana knew about these three outstanding players. Four years later in 1954, there was a family that lived west of Farmersburg, IN in Sullivan county, Mr. & Mrs. Carter Drake. and also basketball fans that had triplet boys. who named their three triplets, FARLEY (for Dick Farley); ARLEY (for Arley Andrews), and HARLEY (for Harley Andrews). Winslow and Farmersburg were in the 1954 regional but did not play each other. This was a pretty big deal to have a baby named after you in this manner. Sixty years ago this year. Dick Farley was an alumni of Winslow High School in 1950 and also played basketball for IU and the Detroit Pistons.
