This is the 82nd straight day of our daily “Remember When” online photo series. It feels like we’re just getting started!

Here is some background on the Methuen girls photos we included. Plenty of special memories here.

We got a fun shot of ex-Ranger greats Jillian Middlemiss and Amy Johnson when they were college basketball rivals.

Also a nice photo of Johnson, Middlemiss, Coach Mimi Hyde, Eagle-Tribune MVP Katherine Curry and the 1999 Division 1 state champion basketball team.
