This photo, found at the Highland County Historical Society’s Pioneer Day in August, shows the last Marshall High School basketball team in 1959-60. The Red Flashes won the Highland County Basketball Tournament that year and was undefeated in the regular season. Marshall merged with Hillsboro the next school year.
