Fullerton College: A Pictorial History

FJC students go through mass calisthenics on the floor of the girls’ gym in 1942. As the Torch yearbook of that year noted, “Building stronger and healthier bodies is the main objective of the girls’ athletics. A program is established in which each girl may receive the benefits of stimulating and well-rounded exercise.” Unlike the men, female team competition was played down, with the yearbook noting that the women “are usually able to boast a small but attentive audience at almost all of their events.”
