There is an interesting comment in it about Delmar High School Hockey

My mom and I saw this old plow outside of an antique store in
Onancock, which sent mom down memory lane. She told me about
her days at Delmar High in the late ‘40s—early ’50s when the
school district couldn’t afford hockey sticks for the gym class, so
they used plow handles. By today’s standards, I guess she was
“under-privileged,” but I don’t think she ever felt that way at all
