Marge Cerveniski-Treadwell
(Basketball, 1960)

Girls’ high school athletics pre-Title IX was limited in the late 1950’s to basketball, field hockey and cheerleading. It was in just such an environment that Marge Treadwell made her mark as one of the finest all around athletes in Danbury High School history. At DHS she played basketball and led the team in scoring during the 1959-1960 season. She was also a cheerleader for the Hatters. There was no high school softball so Marge played for the industrial league team, the Barden Royals, where she was consistently one of Barden’s finest players. Marge was also an avid skier and downhill racer who spent time as a ski instructor at Brodie Mountain and Mad River Glen. Up until this point in the introduction, Marge’s background is a good, solid athletic career but it was her accomplishments on the bowling lanes where Marge truly achieved Hall of Fame caliber status. On the lanes Marge has proven to be one of the top woman bowlers in the greater Danbury area as well as the state of Connecticut. She was a two-time Champion in Connecticut’s Women’s Senior Tournament. She also placed nationally, finishing 13th and 7th in the National Seniors’ Tournament. Her accomplishments as a bowler earned her induction to the Greater Danbury Women’s Bowling Association Hall of Fame and the combination of her athletic achievements earned Marge recognition by the Old Timer’s Association. For 45 years she worked in the Connecticut court system as a clerk of the Danbury Probate Court.
