This President’s Cup Intramural Riflery Trophy dating from 1938-1948 displays the scores of Beaver College’s Intramural Riflery Team listed by graduation year. There is a gap in time from the class of 1942 to the class of 1948, in which trophies were not awarded. Despite the repetitive successes of the women on the team, the amount of competitions for the team was limited due to the need to reserve gas, rubber, and metal for war efforts. Though Beaver College saw a rise in student participation in extracurriculars pertaining to the war efforts, such as joining the Red Cross organization, the students’ involvement with athletics held strong.
