Donna Fisher – Buckeye Hoopster
Donna [Fisher] Dayton was the sister of Josephine [Fisher] Dayton. Donna was the wife of Wilber Jr. and Josephine was the second wife of Charles. You guessed it. Sisters married brothers. In 1929, Aunt Donna was a 15 year-old, (probably Freshman) on the Flushing, Ohio women’s Basketball team. I don’t know if she played college ball, but it’s impressive to think that, during the roaring twenties, women played basketball. Aunt Donna was definitely a trend setter. And since she held an M.A. from the University of Kentucky, we Dayton’s would like to think of her as an Academic All-American.
