The 1959 Minonk-Dana-Rutland basketball team compiled a 20-7 record having won
the Woodford County Basketball Tournament and tying Lexington for a share of the
Midstate Conference championship. The Mohawks were defeated in the finals of the
regional tournament by Hopkins of Granville. The Mohawks had a strong bench and
many times their opponents were exhausted by a two-platooned style of play exercised
by the Mohawks.
