Hackney Library Looks at AC/Barton College Sports Then and Now

Did you know that Atlantic Christian College (now Barton College) fielded a baseball team in 1910?  Or a football team in 1920?  Or a women’s basketball team in 1920?  Or a variety of other sports teams and clubs throughout its history?

Hackney Library now has on exhibit photos and news clippings culled from its archive of various sports and events from the institution’s Atlantic Christian College era.  In addition, the display includes equipment and uniforms  from current Barton sports, such as a track relay baton, a basketball, and a new football jersey.  All are housed in the glass display case near the “Kimono Museum” painting on the back wall.

The next time you’re in the library, take a moment to explore the history of sports at Atlantic Christian College and both current and future sports here at Barton College.
