This dramatization celebrates the Edmonton Grads women's basketball team, which was formed in 1915 and disbanded in 1940. During that time the team was Canadian Champion (1922-1940), North American Champion (1923-1940), and World Champion (1924-1940). Their phenomenal record of 502 wins and 20 losses remains unrivalled by any team in any sport.
